Emergencies come in many forms from wars and natural disasters to global pandemics. Many people face a difficult road ahead because they have lost everything from their sense of security, family and income to food and clothing. The emergency fund gives Life the opportunity to help those people as soon as calamity strikes.
Life has worked in places like Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Gaza, Ghana, Haiti, Iraq, Ivory Coast, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Syria, the U.S., West Bank and Yemen. The years 2019-2020 have provided a unique need with the COVID-19 pandemic affecting people globally. In response, Life has provided senior citizens in the U.S. with meals, as well as food boxes and hygiene kits to many people around the world in places like Afghanistan, Bangladesh, India, Palestine, Yemen and the U.S.
When emergencies strike, Life works quickly and efficiently to respond by providing food, water, medicine, hygiene necessities and shelter. As a non-profit humanitarian organization, we prepare for disasters beforehand, so those who end up suffering during any emergency receive aid immediately.
