We go the extra mile

Global emergencies are on the rise.
The people who are most vulnerable are harder to reach. Crises are lasting longer.
We bring life-saving relief to communities who need help.

Our Focus

Emergency Response

During natural disasters and crises many people die from diseases that are preventable, or from drinking unsafe water. Our top priorities in an emergency are to provide safe drinking water and sanitation, urgent health services, and protective shelters. These actions literally save lives.

Innovation

When we can help more people with limited resources, when we can reach people more quickly and with precisely what they need, and when we can make informed decisions based on high quality data even working in remote places, then we are being innovative.

Women & Children

The most vulnerable
people during
an emergency are
women and children.

We specialise in caring
for pregnant women
and new mothers
and their children.

Refugees

When people flee, their lives are in turmoil.
When they find a place to settle, the ‘host community’ is also in upheaval.

We help those who have lost their homes and livelihoods
and those who are affected by an influx of people in crisis.
