Relief in times of crisis, care when it’s needed most and commitment when others turn away. Red Cross is there for people in need, no matter who you are, no matter where you live.

We help tens of millions of people around the world each year and care for local communities in Australia and Asia Pacific.

With millions of volunteers worldwide and thousands of members, volunteers and supporters across Australia we can reach people and places like nobody else.

The Quadric Project has long been a supporter of the Australian Red Cross though not only direct funding, but also as a valuable connection to trade services for people of need.

Our list of participation is as follows:
