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. Responding to the hunger crisis in sub-Saharan Africa
  2. Helping families affected by the crisis in Ukraine
  3. Insuring farmers in El Salvador against crop loss

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.
