When we launch an appeal

We use a set of criteria to decide when we launch an appeal in response to a disaster overseas and ensure we work effectively.

Our three appeal criteria are:

1. The disaster must be on such a scale and of such urgency as to call for swift international humanitarian assistance.

2. World Humanitarian Aid member charities, or some of them, must be in a position to provide effective and swift humanitarian assistance at a scale to justify a national appeal.

3. There must be reasonable grounds for concluding that a public appeal would be successful, either because of evidence of existing public sympathy for the humanitarian situation or because there is a compelling case indicating the likelihood of significant public support should an appeal be launched.
