What we do


AECID's Humanitarian Action has included responding to emergencies caused by natural disasters over the past 25 years: Hurricane Mitch in 1998, the Indonesian tsunami in 2004, the earthquakes in Haiti in 2010, Nepal in 2015 and Ecuador in 2016, Hurricane Matthew in Haiti in 2016, flooding in Sierra Leone, the earthquake in Mexico in 2017 and Hurricane Irma, in the Caribbean, in 2017. In 2018, our humanitarian action has included Indonesia following the Lombok earthquakes and India following the flooding in Kerala.

Our humanitarian response has also covered the needs arising from fighting in the Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa, as well as the needs created by the effects of climate change—above all in the Sahel—or by chronic and forgotten crises, such as that of the Sahrawi population in Tindouf, the Palestinian population, or the displaced persons of Colombia.
