We deliver life-saving and life-changing interventions to the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people. From rapid emergency response to innovative development programming, we go to the hardest to reach places to make sure that no-one is left behind.
For over 50 years we have been working with the world’s poorest people to transform their lives.
Today we are a team of over 3,500 highly skilled and dedicated professionals from 50 countries who share an exceptional depth and diversity of experience.
Each year our specialist teams work with 25 million people living on less than $2 a day, from war zones in Syria and Somalia to devastating floods in Bangladesh.
Our track record
The communities we help are in some of the hardest to reach and most fragile places. Places prone to conflict, natural disasters, climate change, flooding, and extreme hunger.
We also know that real progress comes not just from reacting to shocks and disasters, that it happens first and foremost at the community level, when people are equipped and empowered to transform their own lives. We work with communities to build their resilience and ensure their transformation is sustainable and long-lasting.
