Headlines in 2022 were dominated by Ukraine, as the global community mobilised in response to one of the most significant humanitarian and refugee crises in recent memory. Coupled with global political instability, the effects of climate change, economic downturns, extreme weather events and ongoing population shifts, the need for humanitarian relief is acute across the globe.
From COVID-19 vaccines and personal protective equipment to hygiene kits and modular homes, our humanitarian teams delivered over 20 million items of medical equipment and supplies in 2022 and have responded to crises in Ukraine, Pakistan, Ethiopia, Tonga, and beyond.
Our Humanitarian and Stabilisation Operations Team works on behalf of the UK Government, which pledged over £220 million in assistance to Ukraine and delivered 398 tonnes of food aid, 23 armoured vehicles, and deployed humanitarian experts to assist with response efforts on an ongoing basis.
On the other side of the world, our Humanitarian Logistics Capability team supports the Australian Government across the Pacific and beyond, including managing the largest humanitarian warehouse in the Southern Hemisphere.
At its core, humanitarian aid is about ensuring that when disaster strikes, the right people get the help they need in the days and weeks that follow. It’s the difference between life and death.
