Your impact in 2018
In 2018, your amazing support helped over 210,000 people around the world who have been affected by disaster and conflict.
…that’s over 30,000 families supported with emergency shelter aid and other essential household items
…and a further 12,000 families supported with essential household items including blankets, mosquito nets, solar lights, cooking sets, water carriers and water filters.
Providing families with Essential aid items
Your support provided families with the essential aid they need to start rebuilding their lives after disaster.
Each disaster is different, and so is every community. We don’t believe that one size fits all, so we spend time talking to affected families to make sure we provide the right support at the right time.
responding to disasters
From earthquakes in Indonesia to the ongoing conflict in Syria, thousands of families were affected by disasters and conflict in 2018.
You helped us respond 18 times to different disasters, helping families to rebuild their lives and their homes. Take a look below at the different types of disasters we responded to or find out where we are currently working.
Delivering aid all over the world
In 2018, you helped our teams go further, reaching families across 17 countries around the world.
We do whatever it takes to support the vulnerable families who are affected by conflict and disaster. Our teams travel by foot, boat, helicopter or even tuk-tuk to get there. Whatever it takes.
We couldn’t do what we do without the amazing support of our partners and incredible volunteers who go above and beyond to help families who have lost so much.
They share our belief in a world where no family is without shelter when disaster strikes, and support us in making this a reality. Their support comes in many forms, including fundraising, volunteering and help in getting our aid to the people who need it most.
In 2018 we worked with thousands of families who have lost their homes and livelihoods through disaster.
With more than 113 million people around the world now displaced because of disaster or conflict, there are more people displaced globally than at any other time in recorded history. With no end of disaster or conflict in sight, we continue to work tirelessly to provide vulnerable people with the emergency shelter and supplies needed to bring shelter, warmth, and recovery.
Your generosity has made a vast difference in the lives of families who lack the basic resources they need to begin to rebuild their lives and communities. Thank you.
