War and disasters send thousands of people fleeing

Every year, war and disasters send thousands of people fleeing. Sadly, this happens all too often, and in all too many places around the world. But often we don't hear much about many of these conflicts.

No matter where or why these people and families are forced to flee their homes, they have one thing in common. They need help.

Families fleeing war and disaster often live in very vulnerable conditions. And they all need shelter, food, water, and medical care.
