Basic Needs Rapid Response

We’ll go whenever, wherever to get emergency water, food, energy, healthcare, protection services, and more to whoever needs it.

On the ground before, during, and after

We mobilize our network of local and global nonprofit, corporate, church, and logistic partners to respond to urgent needs – from disasters and major emergencies to specific instances where a rapid response saves lives. 

Thousands of communities around the world are affected every day by hunger, thirst, natural disasters, disease outbreaks, conflicts, and more. This leaves the people in the most vulnerable of positions already in urgent need of help to survive and recover. Historically, those with a background of working in a country alongside local communities are best suited to support relief efforts quickly and efficiently.

Acting fast before, during, and after an emergency situation and collaborating creatively with diverse partners has meant we can assist the vulnerable when some of the greatest disasters strike.

Honoring women who work in disaster areas

“I have the honor of taking a front seat to watch women serve in areas that are male-dominated in many cultures. I’m thinking specifically of those serving in disaster and emergency relief ministries…”
