Respond to Emergencies

From hurricanes to forced displacement in conflict situations, our Charity Alliance members have the capacity to act swiftly in the wake of natural disasters and humanitarian crises around the world. Leading response organizations, including Americares, Direct Relief, International Medical Corps, and Save the Children, are vital to response efforts. Their teams work on the ground to erect temporary shelters, deliver emergency medical supplies, protect children and others who need special assistance, ensure access to basic resources, and maintain sanitary conditions. They also have established programs in place to help affected individuals and communities attain long-term stability.

When it comes to emergency situations, it’s not a matter of if but when the next will occur.

The people of Afghanistan have endured decades of conflict and violence, and the situation is   forcing thousands to flee for safety. “Since May, nearly 250,000 people have been forced from their homes; 80% of them are women and children,” said Shabia Mantoo, a spokesperson for the U.N. refugee agency. 

This instability is in addition to other humanitarian crises affecting the country, such as famine, natural disasters and the COVID-19 pandemic. Our charity partners have longstanding commitments to the people of Afghanistan and are already mobilizing their response teams. 

Your support is needed urgently. Give through the Afghanistan Refugee Crisis Fund to support our charity partners as they help the Afghan people.

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has propelled millions to leave their homes. In addition to the immediate harm faced by civilians, the massive humanitarian crisis is upending communities, crushing the local economy, halting children’s education and thwarting access to medical care.

  • Distribute medical staff and supplies for lifesaving care.
