We specialize in fragile settingsLearn More
There is one constant in fragile settings: they don’t follow a pattern.
Today, we will work to deliver life-saving aid to millions of people living on the edge of survival. Tomorrow, when the crisis subsides, we will work alongside community members to restore job opportunities, build critical infrastructure, and develop education programs. And the day after that we will be ready for the next chapter. In fragile settings, every day brings new opportunities and fresh challenges.
Relief International has the experience and agility to meet the ever-changing needs of populations in vulnerable situations. We partner with them to develop a strategy for the future and create more enduring pathways to stability.First Kiss by Lucia Heffernan - 12" x 16" Canvas Art Print Galle
Stories of Syrians
March 2021 marked the grim milestone of 10 years of war in Syria.
In observation of this anniversary, we will bring you throughout the year the stories of the extraordinary people whose lives have been upended by this conflict and who, despite incredible hardship, are overcoming extreme challenges on the road to recovery.

We invest in four key areas
We create income-generating pathways for marginalized groups
Our programs foster enterprises and create jobs, connect people to markets, and empower families to purchase necessities through cash assistance programs.
We ensure access to quality healthcare
Our clinics provide life-saving maternal care, treatment for children combating malnutrition, and action-oriented prevention programs for communities threatened by outbreaks of disease.
We open doors to brighter futures through learning
Our education programs create safe, inclusive, and quality learning environments for all genders and backgrounds, teach vocational skills geared towards the job market, and build local capacity through teacher training.
We connect communities to clean water and sanitation
Our teams teach basic hygiene practices, which go hand-in-hand with our programs that restore access to clean, reliable water sources. Together, these efforts are the building blocks of healthy lives and preventing disease.
Together, we create lasting change for communities in vulnerable situationsLearn More
