The work of the Europe, Asia and Americas division of Humanitarian Aid and SHA covers the regions most affected by natural disasters. For this reason, the division works in different sectors including reducing risks and strengthening rapid response mechanisms in the event of natural disasters (Central America, Andes, Central Asia).
The division is carrying out several public reconstruction and rehabilitation projects in areas devastated by natural disasters (Haiti). It is supporting programmes designed to protect populations affected by armed conflicts (Myanmar, Colombia). Finally, it regularly carries out emergency aid operations, such as those in response to the massive earthquake in Haiti in 2010, Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines in 2013, the conflict in the Ukraine since 2014, the earthquakes in Nepal in 2015 and in Ecuador in 2016, the hurricane Matthew in Haiti in 2016, the earthquake and tsunami in Indonesia/Sulawesi in 2018, the hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas in 2019 and the earthquake in Albania in 2019.
