2016 Report: A Little Goes a Long Way

In 2016 we continued to provide high-quality and high-impact support to disaster affected and vulnerable communities in four overseas locations.

Our work directly supported over 4,200 people and, as in previous years, ranged from proactive Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR), through providing immediate relief,
to supporting the sustainable long-term recovery of disaster affected communities.

This wide-ranging success was an incredible achievement, particularly given that we remained severely under-resourced in the UK, and continued to rely largely on volunteers to drive work forward.

Sadly, despite great organisational progress being made during the year, we were unable to secure sustainable staff funding, and at the end of 2016 our ability to continue employing staff in 2017 is under threat.

As a result, we will have to consider a return to being a purely volunteer-driven organisation, if we are to survive at all. While this would inevitably impact the amount of support we are able to provide to our remaining overseas partners, we know better than most that a little goes a long way.
