This Christmas, too many vulnerable people will be feeling pain or fear. Once again, they will need our help. 


In Beirut, a child clings to her father’s hand as they wander through the city, desperately trying to find news of her mother…

And in Yemen, a young mother shelters in an abandoned school, wondering how she will feed her four children in the morning…

War, disaster, disease… they torment too many people around the world. That’s why it’s so important that you are here to help.



Please will you help the Red Cross feed, shelter, and care for them with a special Christmas gift? 

Right here in Ireland, we are delivering food and medicine to vulnerable people cocooning through the pandemic. Because of you.

We never know where a disaster will occur, or where we will be suddenly needed. It could be here at home, or it could be half a world away. But wherever the need is, we must be prepared, and we must be there.


And that’s why we are asking for your help – once again – if you would help with a special gift this Christmas.

€30 is the cost of hygiene kits for 3 families in Beirut.
€50 can provide a food parcel to a vulnerable person, still cocooning.
€150 can help supply face masks to our volunteers across Ireland.
€225 is the cost to provide a shelter kit to a homeless family.
€3,014 can fund a sanitation machine to sanitise ambulances.



Your gift of any size will be treasured.

Thank you!
