Disaster can strike at any moment, and many people around the world are not prepared with supplies to cope with such tragedies. When a natural disaster or social unrest hits, thousands of people are left without basic necessities to survive. Sometimes it can be as simple as a hot meal or a drink of clean water that can be the difference between life and death.

Through our Humanitarian Aid projects, we work strategically to save as many lives as we can around the world. Partnering with generous supporters, like you, we are able to respond quickly in disasters and deliver much-needed relief to thousands of men, women, and children.

Thanks to your help, we’ve provided 34 containers filled with more than $11 million worth of life-saving supplies to people living in Guatemala, Honduras, Iraq, Jordan, Nepal, and Zimbabwe. Some of these items included:

  • Nutritious meals
  • Various medical equipment and supplies
  • Durable clothing and shoes for men, women, and children
  • Temporary tent shelters
  • Bedding

These materials not only help those in dire need, but they literally save lives and restore hope.

In Jordan, thousands of refugees are still fleeing from their home countries, running for their lives to escape the horrific wrath of ISIS. These men, women, and children seek shelter and safety to escape persecution they faced due to race, religion, or political opinions. Having literally left everything behind and escaping with nothing more than the clothes on their backs, they enter Jordan with a mix of fear and uncertainty of what the future holds. For most refugees, turning back is not an option.

The people of Nepal are still recovering and rebuilding from the horrific earthquakes that hit the nation, destroying most of the infrastructure. Many families lost everything, and the aid and relief we were able to provide has saved numerous lives. Truly, your investment in our Humanitarian Aid projects is saving the lives of multitudes of people worldwide.

On average, for every dollar you have given, $33 in aid is provided to refugees in need. “Every day, I am seeing the positive impact that your donations are having on refugees. Thank you for your generosity,” said our partner in Jordan. This is just one of our many partners who are so grateful for your partnership in providing crucial aid that is saving lives.

Because of you, World Help has been able to respond immediately to meet dire physical needs, save lives, and share the love of Christ with those devastated by war, natural disasters, famine, and poverty.

Already this year, we’ve been able to impact nearly 200,000 men, women, and children through our humanitarian aid efforts. Thank you for your passion to be the hands, feet, and heart of Jesus around the world. This would not have been possible without you!
