What we do

Over the last 39 years, we’ve been tackling the world's toughest challenges. In total, we’ve provided $4 billion in lifesaving assistance to more than 220 million people. That's given us a deep understanding of the complex challenges facing our most vulnerable communities, and the approaches required to overcome them.

While each and every community is unique, we are able to tap into a significant body of knowledge and expertise across our 5,000+ member team — 87% of whom are from the countries where they work — to address the most significant and shared global challenges of our time. Beyond emergency aid, we work every day to create lasting change and build resilient communities.
