IPPF Humanitarian: stories from the ground
Our humanitarian work
Conflict and natural disasters cause massive displacement of communities. It strips them of their homes and belongings and leaves those affected by conflict and natural disasters with a sense of fear, uncertainty and panic for what is to come. Our work on the ground in emergency areas is helping provide displaced communities vital access to health care services and advice.
On World Humanitarian Day, we would like to thank the workers on the ground who work tirelessly during and long after emergencies hit communities, to provide the necessary healthcare services that helps rebuild resilient communities.
