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.
