Global Care Australia

Red Dust Challenge


This year, we're celebrating 25 years of Global Care. That's 25 years of Global Care meeting the needs of communities all across Australia. Week in and week out, our 93 local Global Care operations respond to the specific needs within their communities.

As we look to the future, Global Care is facing a significant financial challenge with the loss of a long-term financial sponsor. We're looking for new ways to fund the vital work we are doing across Australia and the world.

Introducing - Red Dust Challenge. This August, we're sending a team of cyclists to cross the Simpson Desert on a gruelling 620km sand track, on a fat bike, over eight days. All to raise $75,000 to fund Global Care's mission. This is where we need your help. 

How can you support the Red Dust Challenge?

We're reaching out to people who love the heart and mission of Global Care as much as we do, and we're asking you to join us in the challenge. We're not asking you to get on a bike and ride across the sand tracks of the Simpson Desert, but to support the challenge in a couple of ways:

Who is Global Care Australia?

Global Care is the social justice and disaster relief arm of the International Network of Churches (INC) and we exist to spread kindness and love across Australia. With 93 local operations and over 2,000 volunteers helping people each week across Australia, Global Care lives out its motto of Mates Helping Mates.

Global Care is best known for its volunteer army in their trademark blue T-shirts, who have proved themselves reliable and invaluable in the aftermath of significant Australian natural disasters. But Global Care provides so much more than disaster relief, with our 93 local operations responding to the specific needs of people within their communities. While the activities vary across Australia, the focus of every Global Care is united by mateship. Global Care has a heart of kindness and generosity, and a intrinsic focus on mates helping mates. This is the week-in, week-out faithful work of this organisation and our incredible volunteers.
