News from trust.org, the Thomson Reuters Foundation's humanitarian news website
Introduction
The Thomson Reuters Foundation journalists cover humanitarian emergencies, aid and development, women's empowerment, human rights, climate change and anti-corruption. Find out more about the world's under-reported stories on trust.org.

We started as AlertNet in 1997, in the aftermath of the 1994 Rwanda genocide and criticism of the slow media response and poorly coordinated activities of relief agencies. The site puts our strengths of speed, accuracy and impartiality at the disposal of the humanitarian community by offering a “one-stop shop” for humanitarian information.
