disaster Response program

Image
Emergencies and disasters are increasing in frequency and severity here at home and abroad. Each event affects hundreds of millions of people and stretches the capacity of the response organizations. BBF’s Disaster Response program focuses on working hand-in-hand with first responders and relief agencies in the affected areas to provide ongoing support. This includes the sourcing and staging of resources, creating partnerships with transportation networks, and working with local partners and other VOADs (Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster), along with engaging with volunteers to sort and send disaster relief supplies.

BBF has responded to disasters and humanitarian crises in collaboration with partners over many decades. These include the tsunami of 2005, Hurricanes Katrina and Matthew, responses in 24 countries, and the Ebola outbreaks in Liberia and Sierra Leone. In 2020, BBF assisted in 47 responses, providing supplies and grants to help those affected by each emergency and disaster.
