We work to restore hope and peace when disaster and conflict strikes. Donate today and help the most vulnerable people on the planet.

Since 2000, there has been a dramatic upsurge in the number and intensity of natural disasters and people are fleeing in record numbers from increasing numbers of conflicts. We believe we’re called to be peacemakers and to help those in need to recover when disasters strike.

Marwa's Story

“My name is Marwa* and I am 27 years old. I have five children, my youngest is 7 months and my eldest is 11 years old. We came here to Lebanon because of the war in Syria four years ago. We used to have a cow farm. I saw bombs, shelling, people dying and ruins all around us. Every day I heard stories of families losing their children and I was so scared of losing one of mine.

When we came here we had nothing except each other. We left everything we owned back in Syria. Some people who went to the church told us about how their church could help us. We reached out to them and they came and met with us.

“When I first met the Pastors I was depressed because of everything I had seen and been through. Soon after we started receiving things from the church like food vouchers, milk and diapers. We still receive these things today to help us.”

My kids were affected by the war and even now when they hear an airplane fly by or fireworks at night, they think there is bombing and shelling. My hope for the future is for my children to get an education and to have no more sadness.”

With the generosity of people like you, Tearfund regularly responds to the needs of thousands of people, like Marwa and her family, every year who are devastated by natural disasters or affected by protracted conflicts.

What we're doing

We have almost five decades of experience working in disasters and conflicts around the world to prevent and alleviate death, human suffering and loss of livelihoods. 

When a disaster or conflict strikes, we respond through the Integral Alliance: a global network of Christian organisations that collaborate and share resources to effectively and quickly help those in need to recover.

When a disaster or conflict hits, our typical response is to:

  • Assess the situation.
  • Provide immediate emergency relief supplies.
  • Rebuild communities and restore livelihoods.
  • Provide ongoing support.
  • Monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of the response.
  • Build future resilience to disasters and conflict.
