Charity Launches Emergency Relief Fund, Ensuring Instant Response to Global Crises

All We Can, a pioneering international development and humanitarian organization, has announced the launch of its Emergency Relief Fund. This ground-breaking initiative is designed to enable All We Can to respond swiftly and effectively to crises occurring around the world. 

In today’s rapidly changing world, emergencies and disasters strike without warning, leaving vulnerable communities in urgent need of support. By establishing a separate pool of emergency funding, All We Can will be able to provide immediate assistance, ensuring that help reaches those affected by crises without delay. 

The Emergency Relief Fund is a direct response to the growing demand for a rapid humanitarian response in times of crisis. By having a separate pool of emergency funding, All We Can hopes to create a way for regular givers to specifically support emergency relief and disaster risk reduction. When disasters strike, the ERF means All We Can is well-equipped and prepared to respond immediately, making a tangible difference in the lives of those affected. 

Natalia, a 43-year-old psychologist from Kiev, shared her first-hand account of the impact of the Emergency Relief Fund. She recounted her journey from Ukraine to Poland, fleeing the conflict and seeking refuge with her children and pets. Natalia explained the challenges faced by refugees, including the difficulties of communication within families, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) among displaced individuals, and the desire of some to return home despite ongoing dangers. 

Currently, Natalia works with people with disabilities, particularly children with Asperger’s and autism, as well as adults suffering from post-traumatic stress. However, she highlighted the technical challenges refugees encounter in accessing psychological support due to their work schedules and transportation constraints. Natalia expressed her willingness to adapt and provide online counselling if necessary, emphasizing the importance of mental health support for the displaced population. 

The launch of All We Can’s Emergency Relief Fund serves as a beacon of hope for individuals like Natalia and countless others impacted by crises worldwide. It enables the organization to respond swiftly and effectively, providing essential aid and support to those in urgent need.  

Individuals and organizations are encouraged to contribute to the Emergency Relief Fund through All We Can’s website. Their donations will empower All We Can to continue making a lasting impact and providing hope in times of crisis. 

Graeme Hodge, CEO of All We Can, said: 

“All We Can recognizes the critical importance of immediate humanitarian response in the face of global crises. Stories like Natalia’s show how the ERF helps us to support vulnerable communities and individuals, providing essential aid and psychological support during their darkest times. We urge everyone to join us in this crucial work by becoming a regular supporter of the fund and making a difference in the lives of those affected by emergencies.”
