Georgia: Emergency Response & Recovery
In the past decade, the need for global humanitarian assistance and, likewise, the number of people in need has been growing exponentially; this growth is due mainly to the increasing numbers of armed conflicts and protracted crises, severe natural disasters, and the global pandemic alongside the pressures of urbanisation. Furthermore, the high numbers of displaced people, a growing funding gap, difficulties with access to affected populations, and severe protection issues require more investment in global collective humanitarian efforts.
In this context, we aim, alongside our partners, to provide principled, relevant, timely, and high-quality humanitarian assistance to save lives, alleviate suffering, and maintain the dignity of affected populations. Our humanitarian assistance is followed by recovery assistance and resilience building. Our humanitarian aid is based on the core principles of humanity, impartiality, neutrality, and independence.
We continue to help people caught in conflicts, forced displacement, and complex crises in Ethiopia. At the same time, we repeatedly helped victims of droughts.
Our main areas of focus:
- Multipurpose cash assistance, including cash as a crosscutting modality
- Nutrition-sensitive food security
- Shelter and non-food items, including infrastructure rehabilitation
- Water, sanitation and hygiene
- Education in emergencies integrating Psychosocial Support and Child Protection
- Protection mainstreaming
