Asia

Our programmes focus on tackling nutrition and improving water, sanitation and hygiene.

We work in eight countries across Asia.

We support a diverse range of communities from Afghanistan to the Philippines, but climate change and natural disasters have a huge impact across the world’s largest continent.
