About Act for Peace

The power of passionate people

Today, there are more refugees, asylum seekers and displaced people worldwide than at any time since World War II. That’s more than 65 million people forced to flee their homes to escape conflict and disaster.

They are the world’s most vulnerable people; mothers and fathers struggling to feed their children; sons and daughters missing out on an education; people dying for want of basic medical care that we take for granted in Australia; and families who, after losing everything, are not getting the support they deserve to rebuild their lives.

It’s a terrible injustice. And one that we can, and must, overcome.

We believe that when people all over the world work together, big changes really are possible. That’s why we’ve made it our mission to act in partnership with other passionate people, like you, across the globe to achieve safety, justice and dignity in communities threatened by conflict and disaster. We don’t think there is any task more important.

With your support, we respond fast in an emergency to deliver lifesaving aid – including food, shelter and water – to where it’s needed most. You’re also supporting long-term development projects that help communities to tackle their own problems – whether that’s giving girls a brighter future through education, helping farmers grow enough to eat or supporting refugees to return home safety after a conflict has ended.

Together, we can tackle the root causes of injustice and build a brighter future for everyone. Thank you for joining us.
