Support rural and remote communities across Australia
Help us get urgent medical care to those devastated by natural disasters
The impact and frequency of natural disasters is increasing. And, sadly, it means more people in rural communities facing the loss of their homes, their livelihoods, and even access to basic services such as water, electricity and health care.
Rural Doctors Foundation began by supporting rural doctors and their communities to rebuild after disaster. Our goal is to get health services up and running as soon as possible following a natural disaster.
Often after such crisis, medical supplies are not able to get through and many rural doctors are stranded, struggling to tend to their patients or assist with emergencies.
Remote and regional communities do it tough when it comes to accessing health care, but the situation is heightened during times of natural disasters.
