Together, we’re saving
lives—before, during
and after disaster strikes.


Hundreds of disasters occur each year, causing immense suffering, destruction and loss. With your help, we can respond to these disasters and save lives.

Thanks to you, last year we were able to respond to 18 disasters around the world, bringing hope and healing to over 1.9 million men, women and children.

When you give, you help us with both immediate response and risk reduction activities. Here’s what that looks like:


Disaster Response

When disaster hits, we work with a vast network of international and local partners to deliver immediate humanitarian assistance to communities in crisis. In the aftermath of such events, we provide:

  • Food & clean water

  • Safe, reliable shelter

  • Sanitation & hygiene

  • Emergency nutrition assistance 

  • Psychosocial support


Disaster Risk Reduction

We also believe there is an opportunity to reduce suffering by taking a proactive approach to disasters, so we work to reduce communities’ underlying vulnerabilities and build cultures of resilience.

We train and mobilize churches and community members to share disaster preparedness messages with neighbors so that when disasters do strike, devastation and loss are significantly reduced.


Because of your generosity, people like Ibud are being equipped to deal with disaster before, during, and after it strikes:

I have come to know my village better and understand what the threats and dangers are that threaten our farms, our economy, and our social lives. And I have been able to help in our village by being involved in the disaster preparedness planning process. I hope this kind of program will be able to continue in our village.
