Initiatives

We have long term relief work initiatives in many communities around the world where the need is especially great.

Haiti

The need in Haiti is still great.

Our volunteers travel to Haiti to support the orphanages and communities we have formed long-term partnerships with. We provide food, clothes, medical care, school supplies and mental health support.

In a partnership with the Haitian Ministry of Education we wrote a children’s book. When Haiti Shakes teaches children how to survive earthquakes as well as how to deal with the emotional trauma that comes from them.

Liberia

Liberia’s history of deadly civil wars and decades of violence left many children orphaned. Once the 2014-2015 Ebola epidemic struck the country, the number of orphaned children skyrocketed. Children lost not only their parents, but often their entire extended family, leaving them without anyone to care for them.

Confounding the orphan crisis are the high rates of maternal mortality and poverty.

It is ESTIMATED that Liberia has over 100,000 ORPHANED children.

Today, years after the civil war and Ebola crisis, the need for help among orphans and children remains high.

Philippines

We have made an ongoing commitment to help the people of the Philippines recover after Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda). We have made multiple relief trips to the Tacloban area. We also wrote a children’s book, When Strong Winds Blow, that has been used to teach thousands of Filipino children about typhoons and their emotions.
