There is one constant in fragile settings: they don’t follow a pattern.
Today, we will work to deliver life-saving aid to millions of people living on the edge of survival. Tomorrow, when the crisis subsides, we will work alongside community members to restore job opportunities, build critical infrastructure, and develop education programs. And the day after that we will be ready for the next chapter. In fragile settings, every day brings new opportunities and fresh challenges.
Relief International’s 7,200 staff and volunteers have the experience and agility to meet the ever-changing needs of vulnerable populations. We partner with them to develop a strategy for the future and create more enduring pathways to stability.
As of 2017, more than 68 million people have fled their homes due to conflict, violence or natural disaster.
Relief International responded to these crises by continuing to expand our lifesaving work in Syria, Yemen, Bangladesh, and other fragile settings.
In an ever-changing world, Relief International’s work as a humanitarian and development organization is more important than ever. The fragile settings where we operate are marked by recurrent man-made or natural crises that impede human development. It’s not our style to parachute in, distribute supplies, and depart for the next crisis. The fragile communities where we work require our long-term commitment.
