Who We Are is What We Do:
IT REALLY IS SIMPLE – WE FIND PEOPLE IN DIRE NEED THROUGHOUT THE WORLD WHOSE HUMANITARIAN NEEDS ARE NOT BEING MET AND WE DO ALL WE CAN TO MEET THOSE NEEDS AND BE WITH THOSE PEOPLE IN THEIR SUFFERING AND HEALING.
People are suffering throughout the world every day due to natural and man-made disasters that also make it difficult to reach them with aid. These areas that we serve are characterized by life threatening situations such as unstable natural environments or hostile war and postwar situations. These are the “hot-spots” of the world, the danger zones where people are seeking a refuge and the means to survive. We do whatever it takes to reach these people and establish for them a refuge of food, medical attention, and education and training that meets their urgent humanitarian needs in a sustainable, life-valuing way.
As Global Refuge, our mission is to provide an emergency lifeline to victims of disease, war, and disaster.
How We Do This by Being Who We Are:
Global Refuge is all about people and relationships that are life-empowering to everyone. We accomplish our mission through relationships we establish with the indigenous and local people. This enables us to learn of and meet the urgent humanitarian needs that occur in crisis and survival environments and that result from impending health threats, what we call “The 5″,
implement our TRAIN-TREAT-EDUCATE model to train and equip leaders among those we are serving. This empowers them to break free from the cycles of suffering and to continue meeting their own needs in a sustainable manner, with Global Refuge as a resource and even if we cannot be physically present.
To serve in this way, we are an international, Non-Governmental Organization (NGO), which allows us to work independently of political constraints and bureaucracy that otherwise limit foreign entry and aid in many parts of our world. Global Refuge assumes full responsibility of the risk this can involve and it ensures that your support and financial contribution goes directly to meeting the needs of the suffering and valuing the sanctity of their lives without bias and for the sole reason that they exist.
