Emergencies

TEAR Australia is urgently raising $75,000 to help our partners respond to severe flooding throughout South Asia.

How TEAR Responds to Emergencies

Integral Alliance

Integral is a global alliance of Christian relief and development agencies responding to emergency situations around the world. Its main focus is on collaborating when disasters happen, to find opportunities to avoid duplication, and to maximise resources for communities requiring emergency relief. TEAR Australia is a member of the Integral alliance.

Integral

While TEAR allocates the majority of its resources to long-term development work, we also support responses our partner organisations make to humanitarian emergencies. Apart from the immense and immediate suffering they cause, disasters deepen poverty and retard development.

TEAR supports both short-term emergency relief projects that enable disaster-affected people to survive, and medium-term recovery and rehabilitation projects. Highest priority is given to those cases where development work that TEAR is supporting is directly affected by a disaster. Care is taken to minimise the risk of relief inputs undermining local markets and communities' other self-help capacities. Focus is given to projects which help prepare communities for longer-term development initiatives.

TEAR responds to partner requests for emergency assistance either directly or through joint efforts with other members of the Integral Alliance.

When you support TEAR through our regular giving programs, it allows us to commit long-term funding for our international partners who are working with communities to create lasting, sustainable change.
