Phases of a Humanitarian Crisis

May 12, 2022

This is the recording of an online training sponsored by the European Region of the Refugee Highway Partnership, an international network of Christians serving refugees. It was created in response to the humanitarian crisis related to the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022.

Rachel Uthmann, IAFR Director of Training, lays out the common phases of an unfolding humanitarian crisis from the perspective of 1) the displaced people, 2) the host society receiving displaced people, and 3) those helping and responding to the crisis.

Tom Albinson, Founder and President of IAFR, then offers an overview of the Continuum of Response as a helpful guide in assessing how to best respond to those affected by the crisis.
