Emergency Disaster Relief
Right now, more than 88 million people around the world have been made homeless by natural 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.
Coronavirus: 'It's not over until it's over everywhere'
Coronavirus is affecting all of us in some way, but those living in refugee camps or in makeshift settlements are particularly vulnerable.
The need for humanitarian support is greater than ever for families already living in inhumane conditions. That is why we’re working around the clock with our trusted partners all over the world to get emergency shelter and essential aid items to families who need it now, more urgently than ever.
Our CEO Sanj Srikanthan explains just how vital emergency shelter aid will be for families around the world during this global pandemic.

RECOVERY STARTS WITH SHELTER
Our vision is to see a world where no family is without shelter after disaster.
Our teams work with disaster-hit families around the world, offering emergency shelter and other essential items to support them in rebuilding their lives.
Every disaster is different and so is every community, so we spend time with those affected to make sure we can offer the right support at the right time to help them recover.
Our response teams can travel by boat, helicopter or tuk-tuk to get to the families who need your support – whatever it takes to get to the people who have lost their homes to disaster.
