Every year, droughts, floods, hurricanes, and other natural disasters affect approximately 100 million people and cause more than $100 billion dollars in economic damage.

Poverty and conflict are inextricably linked to authoritarianism and poor governance, with the consequences for citizens only worsening during times of crisis.

In 2017, conflict in Nigeria, Iraq, Yemen, and South Sudan left tens of millions in need of assistance while Syria entered the sixth year of a brutal civil war that has destroyed entire communities and affected far too many lives.

Providing humanitarian assistance in times of need is the fundamental reflection of our core American values.

Over the last year, we have:

  • Provided emergency assistance to tens of millions of people in 51 countries in response to 53?disasters.
  • Provided food assistance in the form of food, cash transfers for food and food vouchers to 70 million people in 53 countries.
  • Helped prevent conflict and mitigate the impact of unanticipated complex crises with targeted programs in five countries.
