BRAC is committed to standing with communities in crisis.

BRAC was founded as a small relief effort in the aftermath of a devastating war and cyclone that ravaged Bangladesh. We were built on the principle of standing with the most vulnerable in times of crisis, and remain committed to supporting communities affected by conflict, disease, and disaster.

Families in crisis need your support

Our approach

Rohingya refugee crisis

Since August 2017, more than 700,000 Rohingya people uprooted by violence and conflict in Myanmar have fled to Bangladesh in search of safety. BRAC is now the largest responder to the Rohingya refugee crisis, delivering lifesaving assistance and supporting refugees and host communities to build a better tomorrow. Our critical services for Rohingya families and host communities include food, water, shelter, sanitation, health care, education, protection, and more.

Extreme weather

As climate change escalates, communities in the Global South are disproportionately impacted. When extreme weather affects the places where we work, BRAC is positioned to respond quickly and comprehensively, working hand in hand with local communities. For example, when seasonal flooding, monsoon rains, and cyclones strike Bangladesh, BRAC responds rapidly with food aid, shelter, and cash support for impacted families.
