How we work

From emergency aid to independence

Mission East works in situations of relief, rehabilitation and development. Some countries are in the development phase where other locations require programming which caters for both relief and development needs.
Emergency relief aid: Countries can find themselves in a crisis requiring urgent humanitarian assistance. Whenever possible, Mission East responds to ease the suffering through meeting urgent needs.
Rehabilitation: Emergency aid alone is not enough to regenerate communities. Following on from the initial relief effort, programmes start to focus on restoring community assets and laying the ground work for development projects.
Development: Working with local NGOs and civil society groups, Mission East plans and implements projects designed to bring long-term benefits to the community. Projects include working with groups to improve education and health standards for children with disabilities; community driven and manager water and sanitation improvements; farming and small business development.
