Where we work

We work with people living in poverty in some of the poorest communities around the world.

We work with some of the world's most vulnerable communities in 37 countries in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America and the Caribbean.

When emergencies strike in these countries, we are there before, during and after to save lives and support people in the long term. 

We also work in other countries and regions through the ACT Alliance and our other partners, particularly around humanitarian emergencies such as the refugee crisis.
