We help people respond, prepare, and recover from humanitarian crisis. During a disaster, we work with other development agencies, governments and local communities to meet the many immediate needs of affected communities where we already work.
Our Disaster Work Includes:
- Meeting community’s immediate survival needs, including water, food, shelter and healthcare, with particular focus on the needs of children and other vulnerable groups.
- Giving vulnerable children access to education in emergencies, including protecting children and girls from abuse and exploitation via psycho-social supports.
- Providing girls and boys with the knowledge and skills for preparing for and preventing future disasters, including saving lives and reducing losses and damages.
- Supporting the long-term recovery of communities and addressing the root causes of vulnerability.
- Strengthening the capacities of local partners and other key stakeholders in delivering disaster risk management.
We invite you to take a look at some of the ways that we’re helping poor and vulnerable people in emergencies.
