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

Food & clean water
Safe, reliable shelter
Sanitation & hygiene
Emergency nutrition assistance
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.
