Responding to Disaster

Disaster

Most people (92%) who are affected, or killed, by disasters are in poor countries. Our 50 years’ experience responding to floods; earthquakes; tsunamis; typhoons; food crises and conflicts enable us to act quickly, using your support to save lives.

Developing Communities

Communities

Enabling communities to defeat their poverty. Clean water. Food for tomorrow. A roof when it rains. A livelihood. Whatever the need, we don’t do it for them. We go one step further: we help them do it

Envisioning the global church

Church

Equipping the church to end poverty. The giants of poverty must be faced by a more powerful force if they’re to be overcome. So we use your support to work through local churches – the world’s largest voluntary network

Because poverty is also top-down, we campaign in the UK and globally for fair policies to support – not harm – the poor.
