We’re Now Responding to the Australia’s Bushfires Crisis

On the ground before, during, and after

We mobilize our disaster relief volunteers and our network of local and global nonprofits, corporate, church, and logistics partners when disasters strike.

Thousands of communities around the world are affected every day by natural disasters, disease outbreaks, and conflicts. This leaves the most vulnerable people 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 and collaborating creatively with diverse partners has meant we can assist the vulnerable when some of the greatest disasters strike. 

We also build the capacity of our local staff and volunteers to respond quickly and efficiently and work with impacted communities to help them build back better and become more resilient. 

Project Goals
  1. To protect the vulnerable following disasters
  2. To mitigate further or secondary disasters
  3. To provide access to clean water where needed
  4. To help impacted communities build back better
Expected Outcomes
  • Reduced risk of human trafficking
  • Reduced likelihood of a second disaster striking due to contaminated water, like a cholera outbreak
  • Strengthened resiliency in the impacted community
