Our impact in 2017-2018
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 68.5 million people around the world have now been forced from home. Among them are nearly 25.4 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 organizations.

- 1,433,859 blankets

We have been an active partner during the emergency response operations during the displacement crisis in Ethiopia and the humanitarian crises in the Middle East and in parts of Africa. We are working tirelessly with aid agencies and local authorities responding to the ongoing refugee crisis in Myanmar and the hurricane-hit Carribeans island and the recent earthquake in Indonesia.
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.
