Support families affected by cancer

Each year, around 19,403 Australians are newly diagnosed with leukaemia (blood cancer) or a related blood disorder. This is the equivalent to 53 people every day or one person every 27 minutes. Sadly, it is estimated that over 5,950 people will lose their life to blood cancer or a related disorder this year.

Acute lymphoblastic leukaemia (ALL) – a type of cancer that affects the blood and bone marrow – is the most common form of childhood cancer in children between 0-14 years old.

For the 135,000 Australians – children and adults – currently living with leukaemia, research is urgently needed to find a cure for this devastating disease. By donating to our Local Community Support Fund, you could help fund life-saving cancer research, and deliver life-changing services and support to children, adults and families affected by blood cancer.

  • $53 could provide emotional support to family members affected by a new cancer diagnosis, helping patients overcome the first scary moments.
  • $80 could help keep a family together, providing one night’s accommodation for a family who have relocated for life-saving treatment.
  • $150 could help researchers develop better treatments, and one day – a cure for blood cancer.

To make an ongoing positive impact, please consider making a regular monthly donation.

Rescuing children

Rescuing children

Children are especially vulnerable in times of crisis, so while we keep our focus on efforts that deliver long-term change, we are also responsive to the urgent needs created by disasters and conflict. We work with our partners on the ground to deliver critical emergency aid where it is needed.
 Protecting children

Protecting children

The best way to create a future where children are protected is to build communities where their rights are recognised and prioritised. We seek to support and advocate for children around the world, getting families, communities and the children themselves involved on the issues and policies that affect them, to effect change for safer, more empowered futures.
