We meet urgent needs, intervening in catastrophes that compel our immediate attention. Disaster response is core to our DNA -- since 1979 we've engaged local health professionals, mobilized volunteers, and distributed donated health supplies to bring healing to those in crisis. We believe in teams and always partner with organizations on the ground to reach difficult places and have the greatest impact.
UPDATE: We are grateful to generous supporters who helped send health and hygiene supplies to families impacted by Hurricane Harvey in Texas, Hurricane Irma in Florida and Georgia, and Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico. A trusted partner on the ground is continuing to provide medical and health supplies as well as hygiene kits to those in need.
