Victims of catastrophes around the world

Every day, people around the world find themselves in crisis situations or caught up in disasters. In such cases, our support truly makes a difference. Its importance is twofold: firstly as direct aid to quickly relieve initial distress, and secondly as sustained support to rebuild a humane living environment.

Direct, fast, sustainable

Protecting women and children in Africa is one of the main focuses of our international assistance. These are women and children who have lost their homes – often due to natural disasters caused by climate change or resulting conflicts – and are therefore defenceless against sexual and other forms of violence.

As part of this effort, the Luxembourg Red Cross provides the specific expertise it has acquired over decades, and cooperates with partners across all borders.
