Over our 55-year history, the DEC has responded to 72 major emergencies, collectively raising £1.5 billion and reaching millions of people with humanitarian assistance. 

The coalition of humanitarian agencies and media and corporate partners that the DEC brings together is needed now more than ever. Working collaboratively has demonstrated we can do more together and to greater levels of success. It is our joint ambition to continue this approach to strengthen DEC appeals and our response and accountability to our supporters and the people and communities we serve.
