Humanitarian action not only saves lives, it prepares communities to respond to disasters, protects hard-won development gains, and helps people get back on their feet after a crisis strikes.
It is a core American value to help those most in need.
USAID proudly assumes the role of working with and for disaster-affected people on behalf of the U.S. Government and the American people. Every day, USAID makes life better for those in the midst of crisis. Whether we are rescuing a teenager from a collapsed building in Haiti, caring for a malnourished child in Somalia, or giving medical care to those injured by conflict in Syria, USAID’s crisis response efforts represent the best of American generosity.
In addition to saving lives, USAID helps communities prepare for disasters. This protects hard-won development gains and helps people get back on their feet after a crisis strikes.
