Disaster Relief

Exodus Adventure Travels is far more than just a travel company. We are an organisation with a resolute commitment to using our travel as a force for good. Over the years, our unique and far-reaching network of local Exodus employees around the world has meant that critical aid, funds, and supplies can reach even the most rural corners of the world when it is needed most. 

Since 2020, The Exodus Travels Foundation has partnered with REACT, a rapid-responding humanitarian force, to enable quicker response times when disasters do occur and to ensure that our support reaches the people and places that need it most, as quickly as possible. REACT share our mission to provide aid in often extremely remote and inaccessible parts of the world and they achieve this by training ex-military professionals in humanitarian aid so that they can be deployed to distribute that aid where and when it is needed, focussing on areas that other aid agencies aren’t able to reach.  Post crisis, we work with local relief and recovery partners in the destination to ensure continuity of support into the medium and longer term.

Morocco earthquake response  (2023) – The Exodus Travels Foundation funded short-term disaster response through REACT Disaster Response to ensure humanitarian aid, such as food and shelter, reached the most vulnerable following the devastating earthquake. Through the High Atlas Foundation and Baraka Community Partnerships we are also continuing to fund long-term rebuilding and recovery efforts directly in and around the affected destinations that we visit on our trips.

Ukraine Crisis Response (2022) – The Exodus Travels Foundation has donated to both the British Red Cross and UNICEF to support Ukraine during the ongoing conflict. Our live Appeal for Ukraine will help our partner RE:ACT deliver humanitarian aid to the most vulnerable in the hard to reach parts of the Ukrainian border, and coordinate a rapid response as the situation develops. 

Türkiye and Syria earthquake response  (2023)

The Exodus Travels Foundation are supporting REACT Disaster Response to deliver humanitarian aid to the most vulnerable, in hard to reach parts of Türkiye and Syria following the devastating earthquakes. The affected people desperately need heaters, shelter, blankets, sleeping mats, thermal clothes and camp beds. There’s also demand for first aid and medical care, kitchen kits, potable water and ready-to-eat food.

Zambia Christmas COVID Appeal (2021)

 Times have been really tough in this area as a result of the pandemic, with the cost-of-living rocketing and people have been unable to buy the basics. Through our Zambia COVID relief appeal, in partnership with a local organisation Baraka, we supported a number of families this region.

A month’s worth of food (mealie meal, soya chunks and cooking oil) was given to 12 of our local trek and other support staff and their families, and 125 vulnerable kids and their families. Most of those children are attendees of the Learning Centre and 40 of them are young people who attend the Chawama Child Development Trust – a football organisation based in a poor shanty town in Lusaka, Zambia’s capital, that encourages education through sport.

COVID Emergency Relief Appeal (2021)

 As the pandemic continued into 2021, many families and communities across India and Nepal started struggling to get by. Our COVID emergency relief appeal provided over 1000 food parcels to 1755 people in need, including 200 tribal families in India, 21 children at Angel’s Children’s Home in Nepal, 6 elderly people at Kyanjin Gompa Old People’s Home in Nepal, 108 trek staff across Nepal and India and 124 families in Nepal after the flooding. 

Australian Bushfires (2019)

The Exodus Foundation donated to two organisations, WIRES and Red Cross Australia, who were working tirelessly on the ground in extremely dangerous conditions to evacuate stranded local folks and rescue native animals trapped by the bushfires that so tragically ripped through the country in 2019.

Nepal Earthquake, Thulopatel (2015)

Our affinity with Nepal dates all the way back to our very first overland expedition in 1974. So, when two momentous earthquakes devastated huge parts of the country in 2015, affecting tens of thousands of people, our staff, partners, and customers alike were called to action. Thanks to the staggering generosity of everyone who donated, Exodus Travels raised an incredible £270,000 for emergency relief including medicine and food supplies to very remote communities. Longer-term projects were also funded to aid the recovery of the region, including the rebuilding of three schools, numerous homes, and the establishment of a 3-day medical camp for those badly affected in the Thulopatel region. Exodus Travels supplied 1,920 tarpaulins, 79 tin shelters, and building materials for 87 homes that were destroyed during the months of April and May of 2015.

As Nepal began to rebuild in the aftermath of the earthquakes, Exodus Travels were there every step of the way helping in whatever ways that we could.

Moroccan Mudslides, Tighza (2014)

Our partnership with the remote village of Tighza, nestled in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, and its inhabitants has a long history. In November 2014, Morocco was ravaged by storms which severely hit Tighza. Countless buildings were ruined; damaged by falling rocks or washed away by flash floods. Crops, livelihoods, and homes were destroyed in just one weekend. In conjunction with our charity partner, Baraka Community Partnerships, we organised a delivery of emergency aid and set up a relief fund to aid the long-term recovery of the village we are so fond of.

Back to Life Project, Sri Lanka (2004-2009)

Most of us can vividly remember the day that the Tsunami hit Sri Lanka causing colossal death, damage, and destruction to the island nation in its path. In the aftermath, Exodus Travels teamed up with ‘Back to Life’ Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) with a vow to rebuild 25 homes and provide other essential aid.
