Providing shelter after disaster

From Burkina Faso to Ukraine, we’re providing emergency shelter and vital aid for people who have been forced to flee. Will you join us?

Emergency Disaster Relief


Right now, more than 113 million people around the world have been made homeless by disaster and conflict. We’re working to change this.

By providing emergency shelter and tools for families robbed of their homes by disaster, we’re transforming despair into hope.

We want to see a world where no family is left without shelter after disaster. Find out more about us.
