Emergencies and disasters

We’re there before, during and after an emergency to save lives and support people long term
Devastation caused by flooding and mudslides in Freetown, Sierra Leone
At least 350 people have died in Sierra Leone following flash flooding and mudslides. 600 people are still missing and 3,000 have been left homeless. We are on the ground in Freetown, providing urgent support.
We're based in countries affected by disasters so we can be there before, during and after an emergency to save lives and support people long term. Through our work with local organisations in these countries, we can talk directly to the people affected to provide the most useful emergency response.
