Disaster Response

Recovery and Resilience

Disasters in developing countries take a disproportionate toll on people living in poverty, often destroying what headway families have made in improving their situations.

Right now, your gift to the Disaster Response fund helps those families most affected by the COVID-19 crisis in the way we have found to be most effective: direct cash transfer.

Families in need will receive funds deposited directly into the individual bank accounts through which they already receive the majority of their sponsorship benefits. This gives them the most flexibility to address their immediate needs, and helps families avoid difficult decisions between staying safe and healthy through social distancing or leaving home to find work and supplies.

How we are helping

Check out the webinar below to hear from Dan Pearson, director of international programs at Unbound, to learn how families in our program are benefiting from cash transfers during the COVID-19 crisis.
