Overseas

Hope Bridge strives to help climate change refugees around the world who have lost their homes to natural disasters. We are helping them to maintain a stable life in their new homes.

Climate Changes and Natural Disasters

Over the past 100 years, there have been about 37 million people around the world who have lost their lives due to natural disasters. As the years go by, natural disasters are becoming more severe and the damages are becoming more substantial. Many believe that this increase in the number and severity of natural disasters is related to the climate change that is a result of human impact on the environment. Also, the number of victims of natural disasters has increased by an average of 900% since the 1960s. According to the UN, 90% of cases in which emergency relief has been required were related to climate changes.

Climate Refugees Suffering from Natural Disasters

While climate change is a global phenomenon, the damages are not the same in all countries. According to the fourth IPCC report, the effects of climate change are closely related to the issue of poverty in underdeveloped nations. Climate refugees are people who have experienced a severe decline in quality of life or have had to move from where they originally lived due to natural disasters resulting from climate change and global warming. 89% of climate refugees are concentrated in Asia and Africa.

Hope Bridge, the Bridge for Climate Refugees Around the World

Hope Bridge strives to help climate refugees around the world who have lost their homes to natural disasters caused by climate change such as typhoons, floods and droughts. We help them to maintain a stable life in a difficult environment, or to successfully resettle in a new region.
