A healthy, sustainable world — for everyone.

Responding to need.

When communities are devastated by disaster, drought or conflict, your gifts provide life-saving support as families get through crisis and begin to recover. Everywhere we work, our response is guided by the voices of the people we serve.

  1. Supporting families fleeing violence in Sudan
  2. Responding to the earthquake in Türkiye and Syria
  3. Helping families affected by the crisis in Ukraine

Challenging the causes.

We're working for a world where everyone lives in peace, so it's not enough to deal with problems as they come up. We're challenging root causes so that no one is hungry, no one has to flee their home, and no one is denied their rights.
