With devastating weather events like earthquakes and flood and fires hitting communities around the world it’s often difficult to know how best to help.
While we will always try to promote those charities that are helping in specific situations as these events arise, there are some charities that specialise in disaster relief, so they are a good source of information on how to support the affected places and communities.
We have listed below some of the organisations that have been instrumental in helping with disaster relief in recent years and some of these who are currently engaged helping or monitoring live situations such as the terrible earthquake and its aftermath in Morocco and the Libyan floods where over 20,000 people are thought to have died.
