Church-Based Community Transformation

Emergency Relief

When disaster strikes we are there in Jesus’ name to provide
emergency relief and comfort to victims of natural and manmade disasters

Tearfund Emergency Relief program
Helping people in crisis

When conflict and disaster arise the poor usually are hardest hit: 69% of all people killed by disasters around the world live in poverty.

Without social and public safety nets, people can be left with nothing and have to rebuild their lives from scratch.

On the foundation of faith that God will one day make things new, we work to follow Jesus’ call and help the most vulnerable affected by the disaster. This includes:

  • Rushing aid to meet immediate needs – such as food, water, shelter, sanitation and medical care.
  • Additionally, carefully designing projects that aid in long-term recovery.

Over the
last 2 years

people in South Sudan received critical food and water
people received life-saving support during the Sulawesi Earthquake and Tsunami in Indonesia
people received emergency food in the aftermath of Cyclone Idai
What Sets us Apart

Through our partnerships, we can often multiply your donation 2X, 3X, or even 4X.

We subscribe to the highest level of accountability standards, ensuring that your donation is received by those who need it most.

We proactively seek to identify the most vulnerable and provide emergency care.
