Disasters Emergency Committee

We organise disaster relief worldwide to be there for people in desperate need

Charity Registration No. 1062638



 We’re sure you’re all aware of the disaster that has struck Haiti on 12th January 2010, causing an unfolding humanitarian crisis. Many people have been killed and injured and there are also many who are in desperate need of clean water, shelter and medical help.

If you can donate a small amount of money to our page, your money will be going directly to the Disaster Emergency Commission who will ensure that aid can reach the people who need it most.

The Disaster Emergency Committee is an umbrella organisation for 13 humanitarian aid agencies.

The 13 member agencies are:

* ActionAid
* British Red Cross
* Care International
* Christian Aid UK
* Concern Worldwide
* Help the Aged
* Islamic Relief
* Merlin
* Oxfam
* Save the Children
* Tearfund
* World Vision

The member agencies are the leading UK registered humanitarian charities that fulfill certain criteria. DEC members have the profile to ensure successful national appeals and expertise in the delivery and provision of aid.
