Emergency Relief

More disasters happen around the world and more people are affected by them than ever before—due to population growth, climate change, urbanisation, and environmental degradation.

In emergencies, we are ready to deploy within 24 hours to bring communities what is needed most—safe drinking water and sanitation, urgent health services, and protective shelters—while strengthening vulnerable communities and enabling them to be more resilient to future threats. These actions literally save lives.

Women
& Children

 

Women and children are affected differently by emergencies in ways that threaten their survival and dignity.

We provide intensive malnutrition treatment that nourishes and saves the lives of young children, pregnant women, and breastfeeding mothers, as well as teach communities healthier infant feeding practices to prevent malnutrition in the future.

Medair also strengthens local health clinics through training health clinic staff and providing them with essential medicines and supplies. We also support women in having safe childbirth and provide psychosocial support for survivors of sexual and gender based-violence.

Refugees
and displaced
people

Millions of people have lost their homes and livelihoods as the world struggles to cope with a massive displacement crisis.

We help people who flee their homes get access to all the things they need most—shelter and emergency household supplies, safe drinking water and sanitation, and medical care. Our main priorities are survival and safety.

With mental health being a large concern among refugees and displaced people, Medair also provides psychosocial support to address mental health issues and trauma. We also provide affected families with cash assistance, which preserves dignity by giving people the choice of how best to meet their most pressing needs.

Innovation in Aid

With resources limited, improving the way we work saves time and money, meaning more impact and less waste. By using innovative technologies, Medair is able to respond to crises more quickly, effectively, and with greater accountability than ever before. That means we can reach people faster and serve them better.

We invest in GIS (Geographical Information Systems) Mapping technology to identify unreached Syrian refugees in Lebanon, employ tablets and smart phones to collect survey data from the people we reach about their needs in a more efficient and accurate way, and use cloud-based solutions and online live dashboards that are connected to our data management tools so we can relay relevant information between our teams around the world, no matter how remote, in a more timely and efficient manner.
