Humanitarian Services

Humanitarian Services provides aid to people around the world without regard to cultural or religious affiliation. Key projects include:

How We Operate

Two ideas are at the core of the Humanitarian Services response:

  1. 100% of every dollar donated is used to help those in need—without regard to race, religion, or ethnic origin.
  2. Humanitarian Services helps people attain self-sufficiency so they can be self-reliant long after Humanitarian Services departs.

Results

In 2017 Humanitarian Services worked in 139 countries and territories on 2,705 projects with over 1,800 partners to serve millions of people.
