Shipping

We currently have food, clothes, medical supplies, and other donations sitting in our warehouse — but we need your help to ship them to the people who need them! Every $1 you give sends $33 worth of lifesaving aid to someone in need. That means your gift multiplies to make an even bigger impact.

When you give to ship an entire container, you’ll receive consistent communication telling you the status of the container you helped ship. You’ll even hear stories from people who benefited thanks to your donation.

Want to do more to provide lifesaving supplies to people in need as soon as possible?

You also can donate physical items to ship to impoverished communities around the world. Learn more by clicking here.

How your gifts will help

Famine relief

When famine strikes, children suffer the worst. Extreme hunger can cause a child to develop lifelong health problems and can even lead to death. But when you provide food, you can help feed starving children — allowing them to grow healthy and strong. Learn more

Refugee relief

Refugees fleeing violence often have to leave everything behind. Without jobs, they can’t afford necessities such as food, medical supplies, and clothes. By providing these items, you help refugees stay alive and provide hope in the midst of a scary, uncertain future. Learn more

Disaster relief

Disasters come suddenly and often leave people on the brink of death. But your gift will help ensure they receive food, medical equipment, and other lifesaving supplies as soon as possible. You help people survive and rebuild their lives. Learn more
