Organization Mission

USAID CIDI provides resources and conducts public awareness activities designed to empower donors to most effectively help people affected by disasters overseas. Through outreach, partnerships, and our annual student PSAid competition, we support donors and relief agencies as they work together to provide essential relief to disaster victims quickly, effectively, and economically.

USAID CIDI‘s Guidelines for Effective International Disaster Donations have been adopted in some form by many key players in the international donations management arena, including federal and local government agencies and coalitions of relief and development organizations.
