Our impact in 2016-2017
Ongoing wars, political conflicts, earthquakes, floods and other natural disasters are causing a record-high number of people to flee their homes worldwide. An unprecedented 65.6 million people around the world have now been forced from home. Among them are nearly 22.5 million refugees, over half of whom are under the age of 18. At NRS Relief, we respond to global challenges by offering high quality and cost-effective relief products to international agencies, bilateral donors, governments and non-governmental organisations.
Between July 2016 and July 2017, we supplied over 1.5 million life-improving products to 97 clients in 78 countries:
- 103,035 family tents
- 267 mobile storage units
- 501,472 tarpaulins
- 671,732 blankets
- 154,960 jerry cans and water buckets
- 116,500 sleeping mats
- over 10,000 other core relief items.
We have been an active partner during the emergency response operations after the Haiti and Ecuador earthquakes, during the Ebola crisis in West Africa, the European refugee crisis, and the ongoing humanitarian crises in the Middle East and in parts of Africa. We also continue to work 24/7 with aid agencies and local authorities responding to the ongoing Rohingya refugee crisis in Myanmar and the hurricane-hit Caribbean Islands.
Globally, more than 2.8 million people used our disaster relief products.
We played a significant role in the response to crises around the world and we will continue to work around the clock to assist our clients, as well as build strong public-private partnerships for effective and responsible relief operations.
