DEC only appeal when we know we can help. We bring together 14 leading UK aid charities in times of crisis. Since our launch in 1963, we have run 72 appeals and raised more than £1.5 billion - saving millions of lives and rebuilding communities devastated by disasters.
We strive to provide effective and swift humanitarian assistance for all of our appeals.
We work with 14 UK's leading aid charities to provide and deliver aid to ensure successful appeals.
