WHY EMERGENCY RELIEF?
Emergencies affect everyone, but women, children, and those living in poverty often face the greatest impacts. Natural disasters, famine, war and conflict impact all aspects of life: from physical and mental health, to housing and income. Many developing countries are already facing economic hardships and daunting debt, leaving them with limited resources to respond to emergencies. Providing immediate relief supplies can make all the difference for families surviving a crisis.
DID YOU KNOW?
- 130 million people around the world are currently in crises and urgently need humanitarian aid.
- For the first time in over 20 years, the COVID-19 pandemic caused global poverty rates to rise.
- As many as 50% of children report post-traumatic stress disorder symptoms after experiencing a disaster.
- 1.4 billion people live in either fragile, conflict-affected, or vulnerable settings.
One Day’s Wages comes alongside grassroots partners to provide relief supplies like food, hygiene kits and medical support during times of emergency crisis. Since 2009, we have supported 35 emergency relief projects in under-resourced communities, impacting over 548,000 people. Through our partnerships, Suraj was able to continue providing COVID-19 care to patients and acquire medical supplies his facility was in desperate need of, and Excellence received much needed school supplies to continue his education after his community was destroyed by a volcano eruption.
