Crisis Response

When natural disasters and other emergencies take place, relief and recovery teams have to be ready to respond as soon as possible. Send Relief stays prepared to mobilize teams and relief supplies when crises happen.

When disaster strikes, your church or family can help communities that have endured the unimaginable. No matter how distant a disaster may seem, Send Relief has partners around the world ready to jump into action and give food, water, shelter and health care to families recovering from devastation. From major disasters like Hurricane Harvey to smaller disasters like flooding in South Asia, our ministry projects provide relief for months and even years after the disaster.
