When 48,000 children die from hunger every day, something MUST be done. Global Assistance has been extending a hand of love and compassion to these children in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. Many of these children are orphaned or abandoned and without love and compassion and will bear physical and emotional scars of hopelessness and malnutrition for years to come. We have a child sponsorship program in Belarus where sponsors provide a small monthly support for children at risk.
Global Assistance has provided over 2800 40′ shipping containers of aid valued at over $1 billion in relief goods throughout the world. The aid sent includes food, clothing, vegetable seeds, vehicles, medical supplies, medical equipment and school supplies. This effort has been accomplished by working and partnering with groups who share the same goals. Our combined efforts consequently have accomplished more for the greater good of the poor, needy and suffering people throughout the world. Global Assistance, in addition to its on-going programs, responds to natural disasters and needs around the world. We assisted with an earthquake in Pakistan, a tsunami in Sri Lanka, famine in Sudan and hurricanes in New Orleans, Honduras and Haiti, to name a few.
Global Assistance responds to needs as funding becomes available and usually with established contacts. We do not ship to foreign governments. Our aid is distributed by qualified consignees within the recipient country.
Global Assistance program of supplying food, medical supplies and clothing to the needy around the world, has been made possible through the generosity of major corporations of America.
