We work with and for people affected by crisis around the globe.
We were among the first to support people in the Philippines starting recovery work after Typhoon Haiyan. We also support our partners in the Central African Republic, in South Sudan and in other crisis countries worldwide.
You can support us in helping people faced with incredible hardship.
Which project will you choose?
Earthquake survivors in Nepal need your support
People in Nepal are struggling to get back on their feet after the devastating earthquake that struck the country on 25 April. The 7.9 magnitude quake killed more than 5,000 people and left tens of thousands homeless. UNDP is supporting the Government in addressing the most critical needs for shelter, water and sanitation, emergency health and food. Our early recovery programme also includes strategies to mitigate the impact of future natural hazards, and to improve the resilience of communities by helping them build back better.
Help communities recover from the Ebola crisis
The epidemic is slowing down economic growth and closing down businesses, affecting the means of making a living of millions of the poorest and most vulnerable people in the region. With $50 UNDP provides an Ebola-affected family of five with a month's worth of essential supplies.
Support recovery after the floods in Malawi
Torrential rains and flooding in Malawi have caused around 79 deaths, with an additional 153 people still missing. The floods have also displaced 174,000 in the Southern districts of Chikwawa, Nsanje and Phalombe, while infrastructure such as bridges, schools, and roads have been destroyed. With just $88 the UN can feed a family in crisis for two months.
On 8 November, Typhoon Haiyan, one of the most powerful storms on record, struck the Philippines. An estimated 11.8 million people have been affected, and 995,000 people remain displaced.
