Many of the countries where we work are highly vulnerable to emergencies and shocks as a result of conflict and natural disasters. We act quickly to save lives with emergency shelter and food and, once the immediate crisis has passed, we remain on the ground helping to rebuild livelihoods and infrastructure so that communities are better prepared for future emergencies. Read more
