What We Do | Our Programs
Hunger Relief & Basic Provisions Program
We partner with schools, centers, and shelters, both nationally and internationally, along with welfare agencies worldwide, to supply food and basic provisions to impoverished children and their families. We aim to enhance the living conditions of these children, ensuring their nutrition, personal hygiene, and fundamental needs are attended to. Through our Hunger Relief & Basic Provisions Program, we extend aid to victims of natural disasters as well as refugees within the communities we support.
As part of our Hunger Relief and Basic Provisions Program, we also aim to help the victims of disasters in the communities we serve. Our Disaster Relief Program operates in three phases.
- We first offer emergency services and basic relief needs such as water, food, blankets, and tents to the victims of the disaster.
- Next, we provide temporary shelter, mobile units, and temporary infrastructure to offer health services and schooling to those in need.
- Finally, we identify and support the rebuilding process for the communities affected, like rebuilding schools, health centers, and refurbishing homes.
