With both the frequency and intensity of natural disasters on the rise around the globe, there’s an urgent need for a more thoughtful approach to the way we respond and help impacted communities recover.
When a natural disaster strikes, we arrive early and stay late to address the immediate and long-term needs of affected-communities. We work alongside the local residents and deploy our unique volunteer model to enable direct impact — helping families and communities recover by building safe, resilient schools, homes and other community infrastructure.
The communities we serve are not only vulnerable in terms of natural disasters, but also financially. By building in a disaster resilient way, we better prepare them for future events.
Thanks to passionate volunteers, donors and partners, we’ve provided nearly 15 years of disaster relief support to over 1.2 million people and we have active programs around the world today.
“It’s insanely overwhelming to see how people from various walks of life, coming in from different places, despite their race, religion or gender, have united for one noble cause. It restores my faith in humanity.”
Ninety-five cents of every dollar donated is spent on our programs, which is one reason we’ve received this rating seven years in a row, only 7% of U.S. charities evaluated received this honor by Charity Navigator, the most trusted charity assessment organization.
“I used to contribute regularly to another well-known relief entity, but when I investigated them on Charity Navigator and Charity Watch, “All Hands and Hearts” outranked my former choice in every category. Thanks for all you do!” – Monthly donor
