Responding to emergencies
Every year, hundreds of millions of people are affected by disasters and emergencies. It is the women and men, girls and boys living in the world’s poorest countries who are worst affected and least able to recover. In response, we act quickly to save lives, alleviate suffering and help people maintain their human dignity during and in the aftermath of humanitarian crises. Importantly we also support efforts to plan ahead, predict and intervene before a situation deteriorates to crisis point.
