Focus Humanitarian Assistance is committed to building resilient communities in collaboration with national, regional, and local partners

An affiliate of the AKDN, FOCUS facilitates disaster preparedness, response and recovery. Our work enables smooth transitions from disaster assistance to long-term development. Our expertise ranges from providing relief and assistance following landslides, earthquakes, cyclones, floods and disease epidemics. FOCUS has also undertaken successful resettlement programs for displaced families and extended relief and recovery support for communities making the transition to development.

FOCUS also works with numerous like-minded agencies and donor partners, such as governments, multi-lateral and bi-lateral agencies, as well as corporations that share an interest in helping affected communities reduce their dependence on humanitarian assistance and making them self-reliant. Please see our Partners page for a list for partners.

In addition, FOCUS has over a decade’s expertise in fostering disaster-resilient communities and developing methods and training for disaster risk management, from natural hazard risk assessment to mitigation and preparedness in some of the world’s most challenging terrain, including the mountains of Afghanistan, Pakistan and Tajikistan and the coastal plains of the Indian subcontinent.
