Who is CBM Australia?

CBM Australia is part of a Christian international development organisation devoted to improving the lives of people with disabilities in the poorest places on earth. Poverty and disability go hand in hand, creating a cycle of inequality, isolation and exclusion that leads to the most extreme forms of poverty.

Throughout our 115-year history and over 45 years in Australia, we have developed proven community-based programs that help millions of people benefit from real, lasting change.

We are registered as a Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) with the Australian Tax Office, meaning we are able to accept tax deductible donations and gifts.
