Humanitarian Aid & Medicine Donations

Our mission is to support displaced and vulnerable populations around the world in times of emergency crisis through a cross-cutting donation strategy. 


The threats of humanitarian crises are rising. The number of displaced people is becoming critical as we see large populations fleeing not just climate disasters but also war, persecution, and violence, particularly in low-and middle-income countries. The impact of climate change is becoming widely recognized as a contributing factor to migration and conflict: It’s estimated that by 2050, 143 million more climate-related migrants will come from Latin America, sub-Saharan Africa, and Southeast Asia, three regions critically impacted by climate change.

As need grows, we need to re-evaluate how we can be most effective in our support. We are focused on breaking down silos so that we can collectively have the greatest impact for those facing crisis. And we have made progress, including developing emergency preparedness protocols and being an inaugural member of WHO Foundation’s Health Emergencies Alliance.

We aim to facilitate a transition from a reactive to a proactive medicine donation approach and boost efficiency, even in less severe, ongoing crises.
