Emergency response

When an emergency occurs, we respond fast to give people what they need most to survive – whether it’s food, shelter, medical care or other essential items. We’re in for the long-haul too, supporting communities in protracted crises until they’re able to get back on their feet. We also work with communities at risk to prepare in advance, which saves lives when disaster strikes.

Through the ACT Alliance we have partners on the ground in 130 countries, enabling us to respond immediately to emergencies wherever they occur. 

Your support is currently helping to deliver life-saving assistance to Syrian families living in refugee camps in Jordan, including food rations for families who are going hungry and urgent medical case so parents can keep their children healthy and safe. 

In the Pacific region, you’re helping disaster-prone communities prepare for future disasters and reduce their impact, meaning less lives lost and a faster recovery for those affected.
