We exist to help those who are unable to help themselves due to war,
poverty and displacement.  How do we do this?

We take your donations

We obtain the aid that is needed right now

We drive the aid directly to those who need it

Over 95% of what you donate is used for transportation of humanitarian aid and procurement, with only a small amount being used for admin and other costs.
