Help a Hero is a program to support long-term volunteers.
After many missions we found one recurring issue, the absence of a long-term experienced volunteer. This person is the linchpin of any truly successful aid. Ensuring efficiency, providing continuity and supporting short-term volunteers to make sure they are as effective as possible.
Emergency Response is a dedicated fund for situations that require immediate action and aid.
Our contacts on the ground alert us instantly in case of crisis, our flat organization structure allows us to make quick decisions and we always keep a financial buffer to respond to acute situations. This means that we are able to provide emergency support within hours of the occurrence of a situation.
We organize the collection of essential items and deliver them both directly and through our trusted partners to those most in need. The only relief for many refugees is provided by the NGOs on site, who every day distribute clothes, blankets, food and other necessary items.
To date we have brought over 20.000 blankets and 150 m3 of other emergency items to the Netherlands, France, Belgium, Greece and the Balkans.
