Handle With Care International works with our partners on the ground in-country to provide targeted funds and supplies to assist in the immediate response to, and subsequent recovery from, natural disasters and other disruptive events.

In Nepal, this involved the building of permanent accessible, gender sensitive toilet blocks in areas where sanitation was of greatest concern.

In Indonesia, our team is involved in a rapid response to the sudden influx of displaced persons to camps in central Bali following the upgrading of the Mount Agung eruption alert level. Should Mount Agung erupt, our teams are well placed to offer direct, immediate assistance where it is needed.
