We've been working with the world's most vulnerable people to combat poverty and hunger for over 50 years.

Our vision, our mission and our work are all defined by one goal – ending extreme poverty, whatever it takes. We believe that no-one should have to live in fear that they won't have a home to sleep in or enough food to feed their children.
Today we are a team of over 3,500 highly skilled and dedicated professionals from 50 countries who share an exceptional depth and diversity of experience.
Each year our specialist teams work with 25 million people living on less than $2 a day, from war zones in Syria and Somalia to devastating floods in Bangladesh.
Our vision for change
A world where no-one lives in poverty, fear or oppression; where all have access to a decent standard of living and the opportunities and choices essential to a long, healthy and creative life; a world where everyone is treated with dignity and respect.
