Disaster response. We develop and deploy high-impact relief and rehabilitation programs for people displaced by conflict and natural disaster. Together with our volunteers, we provide health care, build capacity of local partners, ship essential medicines and supplies and provide psycho-social training and care.

Volunteering can change your life, too
Volunteers frequently tell us of their experiences. Here's what a recent volunteer told us upon his return from the field:
"I feel different. I am different. I am aware. I am incapable of turning a blind eye now. I am ready to embrace each day with the knowledge that I can make a difference. We can make a difference."

Support a Volunteer
Every month, teams depart for places around the world in need of healing and hope. Each team member donates his or her time. In addition, many pay the travel costs and gather donated supplies and medicines.
You can be part of these teams by supporting them financially. Not all of us can physically touch and help the hurting men, women and children in need. But you help send those who do. See Support a Volunteer to make a donation.
