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, in the last year alone we were able to provide more than 2 million women, men and children in 10 different countries with humanitarian aid and disaster response. When you give, you help us with both immediate response and risk reduction activities.

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.
