Emergency Response Fund

At Goods For Good we work to alleviate the unimaginable distress felt by communities, caused by conflict, natural disasters, climate change, economic crisis and increasing poverty. 

In times of crisis, people in life-and-death situations need our help urgently. From the recent earthquakes in Morocco and Türkiye-Syria, to the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, and unfolding events in the Middle East, each crisis has devastated thousands of lives. In the early stages of an emergency, swift action is critical. For those affected, lives can change in an instant, and for many of the people we support they have lost everything. Our Emergency Response Fund allows us to mobilise quickly when unexpected situations arise, and deliver essential aid to people and families in their hour of need. 


How the fund works

Goods For Good's Emergency Response Fund is a crucial element of our mission to provide swift, effective, and targeted assistance to those in urgent need during times of crisis. This fund is specifically designed to respond rapidly to unfolding events, ensuring that vital resources and aid reach those who need it most. Here's how it works:

  • Rapid Response Mechanism: The Emergency Response Fund is strategically structured to enable swift action. When a crisis unfolds, whether it's a natural disaster, conflict, or any other emergency, we can quickly allocate resources and mobilise our teams on the ground. This allows us to respond to evolving situations in real-time.
  • Flexible Allocation: This fund offers us the flexibility to allocate resources where they are needed most urgently. The nature of crises can vary greatly, and having a dedicated fund allows us to adapt and allocate resources accordingly. For example, if a sudden influx of refugees occurs, as we experienced following the invasion in Ukraine in 2022 , we can swiftly direct aid to address their specific needs.
  • Covering Transport and Operations Costs: Donations to the Emergency Response Fund are instrumental in covering essential costs such as transport, logistics, and operations. These funds ensure that we have the means to get aid to affected regions promptly. Whether it's transporting hygiene goods, medical supplies or any other critical resources, your donations make it possible.
  • Efficient Delivery: Without the burden of having to secure funding for each individual crisis, we can focus on what matters most: efficient delivery of aid. Your contributions enable us to respond without delay, ensuring that life-saving assistance is delivered to those who need it, often at a moment's notice.
  • Expanded Reach: By supporting our Emergency Response Fund, your donations extend our reach and impact. We can reach more people, provide more support, and make a more significant difference in the lives of those affected by disasters or emergencies.

In essence, your generous donations to Goods For Good's Emergency Response Fund empower us to act swiftly and effectively in crisis situations. This fund is the backbone of our ability to provide aid to those who need it most when they need it most. It allows us to bypass bureaucratic delays and ensures that the resources we provide make a tangible difference in the lives of affected individuals and communities. Your support truly serves as a lifeline during these critical moments.

Your donation

Your donation to Goods For Good's Emergency Response Fund plays a pivotal role in our mission to provide rapid assistance during global emergencies. Releasing funds promptly, before further vital donations can be raised, allows us to mobilise swiftly and provide life-saving aid when it's needed most. Regular donations from our supporters enable us to respond immediately to disasters and continue supporting affected communities in the aftermath, offering hope, relief, and recovery. Your support is a beacon of light in times of devastation and darkness.

For every £1 you donate, we can send £50 worth of aid - such as clothing, bedding, footwear, hygiene goods, toiletries, blankets and medical equipment - providing hope and some relief to those facing unimaginable circumstances. 

Right now, we are inviting you to be a part of that lifeline by contributing to Goods For Good's Emergency Response Fund and supporting those affected by the devastating conflict in the Middle East.




Unlike one-off donations, monthly contributions help us build the necessary reserves to cover transport, logistics, and operational costs, ensuring we are always ready to act when unexpected events arise. Lives can change in an instant, and your ongoing support as a Friend of Goods For Good means we're prepared to make a meaningful impact at a moment's notice.
