Humanitarian Assistance

With numerous countries experiencing protracted humanitarian crises–whether natural or man-made crises–the humanitarian community is compelled to come up with new and innovative ways to meet the growing needs of affected populations around the world. At the same time, the number and variety of humanitarian actors have proliferated in the last few years, challenging the humanitarian community to reach out and recognize the unique contributions each kind of actor can bring to the table. Calls to engage the diaspora in humanitarian action are grounded in this shifting humanitarian context, where humanitarians are looking to involve a multitude of stakeholders for a more sustainable and effective response.

This page aims to highlight and facilitate the significant role transnational communities can play in crisis and post-crisis contexts by providing information about and opportunities to assist in these critical situations.
