Humanitarian Aid to the World’s Most Needy
About Global Assistance
Global Assistance provides humanitarian relief throughout the world. Our primary effort is to assist our global community in addressing the need for medical supplies and other humanitarian aid in the neediest areas of the world. Global Assistance was founded in 1991 by Norman Young and Linda Young and is registered with USAID.
We have shipped approximately sixty 40′ ocean containers of relief goods in response to natural disasters in Honduras. We have distributed thousands of gift boxes to children; provided millions of packets of vegetable seeds and distributed them to rural villages; provided medicines and medical supplies to clinics and hospitals; provided construction funds, in part, for an orphanage, feeding center and clinic in the Valley of the Angels; delivered vehicles, including a school bus to transport work teams; and funded work and medical teams to serve the poor people of Honduras.
For over a decade, Global Assistance has supplied Belarus, a former Communist-block country east of Poland and south of Russia, with over 150 8′ x 40′ large shipping containers of relief goods. These life-saving goods have been shipped to non-government humanitarian aid groups. This small Slavic country has not found its way out of the old Communist system as has much of the former Soviet Union, therefore their economy has not developed. The people, specifically the elderly, sick, poor and children are suffering.
Global Assistance has provided humanitarian aid for the people of Israel for many years. Over the centuries, this war-torn land, with all of its ethnic, religious and racial groups, has seen suffering heartache, war and terror attacks. Global Assistance has provided medical supplies and personal care items for both Arabs Israeli military selecting medical supplies to deliver to needy Arab villages. Jews With immigrants arriving in Israel from Russia, Ethiopia and every comer of the earth; many poor Arabs living in rural villages; and a struggling economy due to huge defense spending, our aid was and is crucial. By sharing humanitarian aid with such programs as the Joseph Project and Joseph’s Storehouse, we are able to reach those in need.
Global Assistance is currently collaborating with organizations throughout Africa where the needs are so basic and so fundamental that generally just about any area of Africa is in need of help. Food, medical supplies, medication, clothing, vegetable seeds and the list goes on! Poverty is rampant; AIDS is affecting up to one-half of the population of some nations; education is minimal in much of rural Africa; food is in short supply due to drought and lack of knowledge of modern agricultural techniques. In some countries Global Assistance is partnering with World Children’s Fund and Medical Mission International to assist in alleviating the suffering of the poor and needy. Among some of the countries served in Africa are Zimbabwe, Zambia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Ethiopia, Niger, Sudan, South Africa, Mozambique and Burkina Faso.
