You have fled headlong. It was a matter of life or death. You could not wait a minute longer. Your husband was too late, he is not there anymore. You managed to escape. You were on the road for days without eating anything. Now you are in a clump with thousands of people in a refugee camp. It smells huge, because there are no toilets. Your children hardly sleep from fear. There is no prospect. There are only risks: disease, violence, rape, hunger. During the day your dreams have evaporated, at night you are plagued by one after the other nightmare.
Too many people live in a situation that is not human. We offer emergency assistance when a crisis situation suddenly arises and immediate help is needed, usually through war or natural disaster. The people who experience this quickly need basic services, such as food, drinks, shelter, medicine, operations and psychological help. On this page you can read where and with whom we organize this emergency aid.
