Human impact stories from the Tearfund project through LSESD’s local partner inside Syria
When disasters strike, it is poor communities who feel the impact most.
Recent Typhoon Haiyan has left thousands dead and millions affected across the Philippines
Tearfund’s partners are responding – helping survivors who urgently need food, water, shelter and support to find their loved ones.
Tearfund also helps people in countries like India, 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.
