About Us

We specialize in fragile settings

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 has the experience and agility to meet the ever-changing needs of populations in vulnerable situations. We partner with them to develop a strategy for the future and create more enduring pathways to stability.

CLIMATE CHANGE

Fighting the Causes and Effects of Climate Change

Extreme weather events, fueled by climate change, are occurring with greater frequency and intensity than ever before.

Often, it is the communities already living in fragile settings that are the hardest hit.

Relief International delivers urgent humanitarian aid when crisis strikes. It then partners with communities to develop long lasting, climate-conscious development programs to adapt to the challenging reality of a warming world.
