About East Africa
East Africa is a very diverse region, home to over 170 million people, out of which at least twenty million live in extreme and chronic poverty. When a crisis happens, these are the people who are most affected. By having a presence in the region and focusing on skills for effective and efficient humanitarian response, we aim to enable people to be better prepared when disasters strike.
