Heading 6


As the humanitarian organisation, UFVRA works to meet needs wherever they exist, regardless of circumstance. For our more than 1,000 dedicated staff and volunteers, there is no village too small, no community too remote, and no disaster zone too hard-hit. When they need us, we’re there.

In 2018, UFVRA provided life-changing assistance to more than 1 million people around the world, across a diverse range of sectors. While it is true that nearly 69 percent of the people were served in the sectors of Education, Food Security, Health, and Emergency Response, UFVRA also focused on other areas too, including Advocacy, Child Protection, Economic Development, and Women’s Empowerment, among many others.

UFVRA also faced major humanitarian crises. In Bangladesh, our global network responded to the heartbreaking plight of the Rohingya refugees by providing much-needed food, shelter, access to toilets and hygiene supplies, and other assistance to thousands of families. Additionally, when the Caribbean was hit by three tropical storms one after the other, UFVRA was one of the few humanitarian organisation to help several islands impacted get access to food, clean water, hygiene kits, and other vital emergency resources.

The other significant crisis we addressed was recurrent famine in East Africa and Yemen, which left over 5.6 million people displaced. As the drought crisis remains, we continue working closely with the local governments to coordinate life sustaining assistance to people in dire need. And that same dedication is true for dozens of projects all around the world. With our new 2018–2024 Strategic Framework in place, we plan to continue these diverse and transformative projects with even greater efficiency and effectiveness.

This six-year strategic framework, the first UFVRA  initiative to unify all 10 UFVRA offices around the world, has already begun to provide stronger focus, collaboration, and cohesion within the global UFVRA network, while also fostering strong strategic partnerships with corporate entities and other non Governmental organisations.

The stories within this annual report serve as a testament to that crosscutting, multi-sector, and multi-agency approach to global humanitarian work. But more importantly, they are a testament to those who have supported us. As we continue to put Fund raising message into action, people all around the world continue to receive the help they need, regardless of circumstance. Thank you for helping us continue to meet needs all across the globe, Peter Lee, President
