The Program

Red Cross’ Migration Support Programs (MSP) works to assist migrants in transition to ensure they have their humanitarian needs met and are participating and included in Australian society. Australian Red Cross also works to directly contribute to the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement’s increased impact on migration.
