Humanitarian Aid

Become a Project Partner

Families and children living in desperate poverty need your help with projects both big and small – from creating community gardens and improving sanitary conditions to purchasing school supplies and getting vaccinated against deadly diseases.

Your donation goes directly to the project you select and makes a difference right away.

You can choose a big project:

Devasting Earthquake in the Philippines – On July 6, 2017 the Philippine city of Ormoc was hit by a devastating 6.5 magnitude earthquake. The quake along with subsequent landslides and aftershocks leveled some homes, damaged many more, and resulted in some fatalities.

Life Skills Education for Children Living in Vietnamese Orphanages – When children spend most of their days within their school or orphanage, they miss out on real-world experiences and don’t develop adequate social skills. They lack confidence and a sense of being loved. As a result, they tend to be unable to handle their emotions. They have higher rates of depression and anger. In fact, 80% of children in Vietnamese orphanages lack life skills that allow them to deal effectively with the demands of everyday life. These children need you. If you support this program, they can learn the kinds of things that aren’t taught in schools.

Forgotten Children in the Hmong Hill Tribe in Thailand – The Hmong Hill Tribe in Phitsanalok children suffer from malnutrition, head lice, tooth decay and other communicable diseases such as ring worm. There is little incentive to attend school, and they almost never go beyond primary school. They lack school supplies, toys and simple opportunities other children take for granted. The families have many children, are very poor and live in small wooden houses. They farm on high mountains typically growing plants such as cabbage, lettuce and paper daisy.. Your gift helps establish a branch office in Phitsanalok and a child sponsorship program to serve ethnic minority children in the Hmong Hill Tribe living in a village on the high mountains in Phoo Hin Rongkla National Park.

Or, you can choose a smaller project from our Global Marketplace.  Your donation of school supplies, school uniforms and tutorial sessions will enable children to go to school and realize their fullest potential.

Any and all gifts are meaningful.
Thank you for bringing hope and creating brighter futures for these children and families.
