For those outside travel distance we can discuss how you can help remotly.

If you can spare a day, or more, on a regular basis you are welcome to contact us on  0499 373 233, or admin @disasteraidaustralia.org.au and we can further discuss ways in which you can use your skills to assist in our activities.

Be A Champion

It is important to get our message out so we can raise the funds to deliver Aid.

One method we find to be particularly valuable is our ‘Ambassadors’ who visit Rotary Clubs, and other service organisations to talk about the Work of Disaster Aid.

We are able to provide a wide range of resources to assist you including.

  • Training
  • Displays of Disaster Aid Resources
  • Examples of Equipment
  • Videos
  • Powerpoint slides
  • Posters
  • Leaflets

As our base is in Victoria, any support from other locations in Australia for an Ambassador Role is particularly valuable.
