As well as helping to drive long-term change, our supporters helped save lives when families were forced from their homes by 72 disasters last year.
We responded within hours when disaster struck in 18 countries across four continents, helping provide shelter, sanitation and psychosocial support. Millions of people were forced to flee their homes by disasters such as floods, storms and earthquakes, as well as violence and conflict. Alongside urgent food, water, shelter and hygiene supplies, we also offered psychosocial support in our Child Friendly Spaces, giving young survivors a safe place to be children again.
The work continues
Last year, our supporters changed the lives of four million people – two million of them children. Sadly, with chronic instability, conflict, and violence, many more children are trapped in crippling poverty and extreme vulnerability to illness, abuse and exploitation. Increasingly we are working in the world’s hardest places. With your support, together we can help more children face the future with hope, strength and confidence. Will you join us and help more children fulfil their God-given potential?
