Now more than ever, what defines our work is near-constant change. Humanitarian crises do not look the same as five years ago, and five years from now we can expect them to look different than today.
In 2018, Relief International’s teams responded swiftly to communities suffering from natural disasters and conflicts.
We treated war wounds on the frontlines in Syria, delivered safe drinking water to drought-stricken villages in Afghanistan, and provided cash assistance to families on the brink of famine in Yemen.
At the same time, we deepened our commitment to sustainable development in places consumed by fragility. In Somalia, we’re educating a new generation of girls — a feat that requires harnessing long-established relationships to overcome political, economic, and cultural norms.
These successes and challenges are captured within the pages of the 2018 Annual Report, where Miriam, Ifrah, and other community members give voice to the realities of living in a fragile setting.
