The Australian Government can and should do more to help people around the world in urgent need of a fair go. We must stop ignoring the crisis in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and start helping the millions of displaced people.
Use the below form to send a quick email to your local Federal MP. Ask them to do all they can to increase Australia's aid and fund the DRC Humanitarian Response Plan.
After entering your postcode it will automatically display 1-3 Federal electorates you could belong to. Click on your electorate and press 'send' and the email will open in your default email app (e.g. Outlook, Gmail etc).
Donate your teddy bear, create or attend a #BearsOnStairs event. Help us put a spotlight on the 480 DR Congolese children under 5 who are being forced to flee their homes and their country every day! Let's show them Australia cares. Bring a bear!
