In 2013, millions of people woke up each day to challenges most of us cannot imagine. They woke up to brutal civil war in Syria. To a ferocious typhoon in the Philippines. And to the daily struggle for food in Ethiopia. The compassion and commitment of our donors enabled us to help people survive disasters and emergencies, get back on their feet — and move forward stronger than before.
In more than 40 countries, our teams bring their unique combination of innovative thinking, hands-on experience and technical knowledge. They listen carefully to the grassroots know-how of local people, then join forces with struggling communities to improve their lives in concrete, sustainable ways. Every day we pledge our greatest efforts to help people in the world's toughest places overcome obstacles and adapt to the rapid changes all around them.
