Melwin Foundation
works in over 25
African countries,
reaching more than
30 million people
through 400 projects.

More than 40.8 million
people have been forcibly
displaced from their homes.

The human consequences of these crises
are devastating. Families struggle to find
shelter, to get enough to eat,
medical assistance and
to find safe places to rebuild their lives.
One in five women in crisis has
experienced sexual assault.

On average, humanitarian crises are more complex than at any time in the last 15 years, and last nearly three years longer than they used to. Conflict, migration, and climate change are the key trends driving these crises — with 8 of the worst food crises in the world linked to conflict and climate change.

And so far, we have only raised 24% of the money we would need to help all the people in crisis.
These trends to longer, more complicated crises have a huge impact on our ability to support the people in need.

We need to think about funding over the long term, and not just filling immediate gaps. We need to think about ways to prepare people and communities to cope with shocks and respond to emergencies themselves. We need to strengthen local institutions that can respond to people on the ground. And we need to find ways to address trends like climate change and conflict that make the situation worse.
