Emergency response

Because Africa is home, we are here responding to emergencies before others come and we remain after they leave. During the storms, through the conflicts and after the floods we rebuild, repair, rehabilitate, restore and revive. We can’t do this without your help. Emergencies don’t wait. Don’t wait to give.

We provide emergency shelter, clothing and medical supplies.
