Our mission is to unite the skills and experience of military veterans to rapidly deploy disaster relief teams in Australia and around the world.

Disaster Response

Disaster Relief Australia  provides disaster response to those affected by natural disasters, be they domestic or international.

By pairing the skills and experiences of military veterans with emergency responders, medical professionals, and technology solutions, Disaster Relief Australia aims to provide the greatest service and impact possible.

Through continued service, Disaster Relief Australia seeks to provide our veterans with three things they lose after leaving the military:

a purpose, gained through disaster relief;

community, built by serving with others; and

identity, from recognizing the impact one individual can make.

Coupled with leadership development and other opportunities, Disaster Relief Australia looks to help veterans transition from military to civilian life.

Serving the underserved

When selecting projects, we look for grassroots development initiatives where community members, particularly the poorest and most marginalised, have determined project priorities and participate at every level of project implementation.

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, or unchecked wildfires. By focusing on underserved or economically-challenged communities, Disaster Relief Australia seeks to makes the largest impact possible.

Disasters represent a massive financial cost, and by providing immediate relief work, free of cost to the community, DRA aims to help communities begin recovery sooner.
