Around the world, we are seeing increasing numbers of people in need of assistance. Some may need urgent supplies after an emergency, while others may need support or advice to become more resilient and independent.


Change for the better is possible

With your support, our partners are making change happen. In our Summer Update 2023 you will discover:

  • How 72,000 people in Sindh province, Pakistan, have accessed medical assistance after the floods.

  • The support that our partners continue to deliver in Syria and Ukraine.

  • The power of information in preventing malnutrition in rural Sierra Leone.

  • The challenges faced by pastoralist communities in Marsabit, Kenya, who have lived without rain for 2 years.

Would you like to know more?

If you're considering a large gift and would like to understand better what moves us, who our partners are and what they do, we are here to help.

Our staff will be delighted to introduce you to our strategy and answer your questions so you can make the best decision.
