Our neighbours in Asia are currently facing emergencies that threaten the livelihoods of the most vulnerable communities.
  • A second wave of COVID-19 is causing widespread devastation across India, with over 400,000 recorded deaths.
  • In Indonesia, the country is grappling with COVID-19 cases and deaths at record levels, with low supplies of oxygen and nearly 1,000 deaths of health workers. 
  • A massive fire swept through a Rohingya refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar, and Bangladesh has now imposed its harshest COVID-19 lockdown to date.
  • In Timor-Leste, a once-in-a-generation flood destroyed homes and critical infrastructure.

Your generous donation today can provide urgent relief to communities around the world during emergencies.

Timor Leste and Indonesia Floods

Tropical Cyclone Seroja struck Timor-Leste and eastern parts of Indonesia in April 2021, triggering torrential rain and flash flooding. Our local partners in Timor-Leste and Indonesia are distributing food to communities displaced by the floods. We are also providing blankets for pregnant women, people with disability, elderly people and children in Timor-Leste.

South-East Asia Cyclone Crisis

When Super Typhoon Goni hit the Philippines, it destroyed thousands of homes, and brought some of the worst flooding and landslides in decades to Cambodia and Vietnam. We are working with our partners to assess the damage and provide shelter, food and sanitation kits to those in need.
