The Disaster Relief Emergency Fund (DREF) was established by the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) in 1985 to provide immediate financial support to Red Cross Red Crescent National Societies, enabling them to carry out their unique role as first responders after a disaster. The European Commission humanitarian aid department is a key donor to the DREF.
