From Relief to Long-Term Recovery
We respond to dozens of disasters each year, reaching approximately 12 million people through our emergency programs.
Our decades of experience, expansive global reach and robust network of partners enable us to take a comprehensive approach to emergency relief.
First, we work with communities to prepare for and mitigate the impact of disasters.
Then, we partner with local groups to provide immediate assistance when an emergency hits.
And finally, we work with survivors, especially women and children, to help them recover after the crisis has passed.
