Humanitarian Aid

When poverty or disaster strike, you can be the one who provides immediate help to someone in desperate need. That help can come in the form of a bag of rice, a shipment of medical equipment, or warm clothes in the middle of winter. Whether you donate physical goods or help cover the cost to ship supplies to the people who need them, you will be saving lives by meeting urgent physical needs. You will make an incredible, global impact!
