Emergency Response


We support communities impacted by natural disasters or humanitarian crises – a key reason for forced migration.

Impact Since 2001

When there's a crisis, we need partners who can act quickly to help us get support to where it's needed the most. The Western Union Foundation is there when we need them, from providing financial support to fund our relief efforts to mobilizing business resources and employee volunteers from the Western Union Company.
