Medair is a humanitarian organization inspired by Christian faith to relieve human suffering in some of the world’s most remote and devastated places.

Since 1989, we’ve been helping families in crisis around the world — regardless of gender, race, creed, or nationality — survive and recover with dignity.

Reaching the forgotten. Saving lives. Strengthening communities.

Our Work in Action

Our core values are what unite us together around a common mission.
They shape what we do and how we do it.

How We Help

We employ experts in the fields of health and nutrition; shelter and infrastructure; water, sanitation, and hygiene; and cash assistance to assist families in meeting their basic needs during crises.

Then, we stay to help communities recover from crisis with dignity and safeguard against future disasters.

We work side-by-side with communities to leave a lasting impact and we strive,
wherever possible, to personalize our assistance to the individual needs of the people we serve.

In 2018, we served 2.6 million people around the world.
