Changing Lives for 75 Years.
We're Just
Getting Started.

In 2018, we celebrated our 75th anniversary. Born out of the refugee crisis following World War II, today our staff, partners, supporters and beneficiaries serve in more than 100 countries around the world, responding to disaster, strengthening communities and so much more.

In honor of our 75th anniversary year, we documented key moments throughout our history. Join us in reflecting on where we've been—and where we hope to go together.

They Said It Couldn’t Be Done

We hear about a time—less than 20 years ago—when people said it was just too expensive … too risky … too hard … to stem the deadly tide of HIV and AIDS in sub-Saharan Africa. They said it couldn’t be done. But, of course, they were wrong.
