Emergencies Response

The number of people affected by humanitarian crisis has almost double in the past decade. Poor countries are four times likely than rich ones to experience major conflicts. And people living in poverty are the most vulnerable to all kinds of disasters.

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.
