Medair 

11/09/2020

This year we celebrate 10 years of partnership with the Souter Charitable Trust!

Medair is an international humanitarian organisation working to relieve human suffering in some of the world’s most remote and devastated places.

We specialise in providing rapid multi-sectoral assistance to sudden onset emergencies and we have an emergency response team ready to deploy within 24 hours. We provide a range of emergency relief and recovery services, including health care and nutrition, safe water, sanitation and hygiene, shelter and infrastructure. We save lives in emergencies and then stay to help people recover from crisis with dignity, working side by side with communities to leave a lasting impact.

Since 2011, the support of the Souter Charitable Trust has enabled us to bring relief and recovery to thousands of vulnerable people in some of the most remote places across the world.

Thanks to the Trust support to our project after the Indonesia tsunami in 2018, we distributed emergency shelter, Non-Food Item and hygiene kits, and we promoted safe hygiene practices among the community, reaching 16,093 people in Central Sulawesi through this project.

In 2019, the Trust contribution to our work in Mozambique in response to the devastation caused by Cyclone Idai, has enabled us to distribute vital aid and resources to 3,830 households across eight communities. The provision of water treatment and filter training has strengthened communities’ understanding and use of locally available products that will be used for years to come.

Medair is currently responding in Beirut, Lebanon, following the massive explosion on 4 August 2020.The Trust support is enabling us to respond rapidly and bring relief to the population, and will help us to rehabilitate damaged health clinics.

Together, we are saving lives and giving communities hope for the future.
