Emergency Response Fund
Donations to our Emergency Response Fund means we can help people as soon as a crisis hits.
Over the years, thanks to donations from Scotland, SCIAF has helped thousands of families affected by natural disasters such as floods, storms and hurricanes, which have cost lives, destroyed homes and livelihoods and pushed people further into poverty. It also allows us to provide vital shelter, food and medicine to people caught up in ongoing humanitarian crises such as the Syrian war.
We're working with some of the world’s most vulnerable people to provide clean water, soap, medical treatment and essential food supplies.
Working with the Scottish Government we supported 6,000 people displaced by fighting in Syria.Read more

With any global crisis, the poorest people are always hit hardest and COVID -19 is no different.
Many do not have access to clean running water or state help to survive a lockdown and spiralling food costs.
SCIAF is working hand in hand with local partners to provide clean water and soap so people can protect themselves, help with medical treatment and essential food supplies to those who need it most.
During these difficult times, with your support, we will ensure the world’s most vulnerable people get the help they need.
