Patrick is one in a million but his childhood has been torn apart by war, death and separation
Floods, droughts and earthquakes are on the increase
2010 was the worst year on record for natural disasters. When disasters strike, it is poor communities who feel the impact most.
Tearfund helps people in countries like Haiti and Pakistan to deal with the aftermath of emergencies and prepare for future disasters. We support the local church to respond quickly to the immediate needs in their community.
Where the scale of the emergency is beyond their capacity we send disaster response teams of engineers, nutritionists, doctors and project managers to bring relief. We provide clean water and sanitation to prevent the spread of diseases. We provide food for the hungry and shelter for the homeless. We train local farmers to plant drought-resistant crops to prevent future famines. We can’t stop disasters happening, but we can save lives when they strike.
