Global Care’s DNA is summed up in their motto: Mates Helping Mates. They are passionately and proudly Australian and they are here to help Aussies… and those further afield.
Global Care is also the “Social Justice” and disaster relief arm of the International Network of Churches.
For over 26 years, Global Care has helped devastated communities worldwide to rebuild and reconnect after natural disasters, and has done it by practical help at the ground level. It can be as small as a wheelchair, or as large as tsunami… if the need exists, Global Care is there.
There are 86 Global Care locations around Australia and another 40 locations in places like Argentina, Uganda, Vanuatu, Solomon Islands, Fiji, Brazil, Chile, Columbia and Vietnam.
Whilst Global Care specialises in natural disaster responses and helping victims, it also is an organisation that each week runs op shops, low cost food stores, support services for those in need, training programs, court support and school brekky programs and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Each week, globally there are about 3,500 volunteers that are mobilised through local Global Care operations, helping in excess of 10,000 people.
It really is an amazing organisation.
