Our impact

Operation Burton

Serving the underserved

Across the world, disasters are a part of life. No corner of the globe is spared from severe weather – be it crippling winter storms, catastrophic cyclones, unchecked wildfires, or other disruptive events such as pandemics that can strike unexpectedly, challenging our resilience and adaptability.

When planning operations and initiatives, Disaster Relief Australia (DRA) seeks to make the largest impact possible by focusing on underserved or economically challenged communities. We seek to work with community members on grassroot projects and initiatives. These projects, often in the poorest and most marginalised areas, are identified and prioritised by the community, who participate at every level of implementation.

Disasters carry substantial financial costs. By delivering relief efforts with no direct expense to the communities we work with, we can support their journey towards recovery.
