Show people facing disaster they haven’t been forgotten
When disasters strike around the world, you can be a part of the solution. Your gift will help families who’ve lost everything get back on their feet – and stay there.
Extreme weather like flooding, cyclones and droughts are becoming more common and severe. It is the poorest people who are hit the hardest. According to the UN, in 2018 disasters forced 17.2 million people from their homes. This is pushing families further into poverty and trapping them there.
Tearfund works in more than 50 countries and we have built strong relationships with local communities and churches. This enables us to respond powerfully and quickly when disasters hit – and we’re there long after the journalists and TV cameras have left.
For people like Shorifa from Bangladesh, your support is life changing. When the coronavirus pandemic brought lockdown to her village, her business had to close and she was left with very little. She then lost even more when Cyclone Amphan hit just a few months later. But, thanks to the support she received Tearfund, Shorifa has been able to survive in the face of disaster.
Our work saves lives, supports recovery and helps people be better prepared to withstand the shock when disaster strikes.
We’re committed not only to helping people with their immediate needs such as shelter and food, but to provide vital training that will help them stand firm if disaster strikes again.
Your regular gift will help save lives. You can show some of the world’s most vulnerable people they are not forgotten when disaster hits.
£9 a month will show people facing disaster they haven’t been forgotten.
Your life-giving monthly gift could:
- provide a nutritious meal every day for a child with severe malnutrition in Bangladesh
- In the Democratic Republic of Congo, hand sanitiser could be provided to school children every month preventing the spread of COVID-19
- Monthly counselling and support could be provided to 8 Indonesian schoolchildren, helping build resilience and address the trauma of an earthquake
