Disaster Relief

Convoy of Hope Europe (COHEU) is connected across 43 countries and 6 in Eurasia, which means our responders are never far away when disaster strikes. Our teams are able to provide immediate relief supplies and financial assistance to those hit worst by the disaster.

For example, when a major earthquake hit the Abruzzo region in central Italy in 2009, the Italian government would not allow international organizations to assist with the disaster response. Since COHEU already had a presence in the area, we were exempt and immediately able to begin distributing water, medical supplies, and other aid.
