The world’s poorest people are the most vulnerable to devastating emergencies – natural disasters, war, famine, and outbreaks of disease.
We are currently responding to emergencies all around the world – read below for more information about each situation.
Whether it’s a man-made or natural disaster, just after the emergency has occurred we provide food, shelter, clean water, sanitation facilities, medical care, tools, and seeds to the people who need it most.
We continue to help people rebuild their lives and restore their livelihoods in the years following the event. We also work in disaster risk reduction, working with communities to help them prepare and plan for emergencies, and work specifically with women who are disproportionately affected by emergencies.
