The Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) brings together 13 leading UK aid charities in times of crisis in the world’s poorest countries. We co-ordinate emergency appeals to raise money to help those impacted by disasters, ensuring that when lives hang in the balance, no time is wasted.
DEC member charities are experts in humanitarian aid, working tirelessly to ensure lifesaving assistance reaches those who need it most. With your support we can reach more people with urgently needed help including food, clean water and medical supplies. To find out more visit www.dec.org.uk
