Addressing the Needs of Our Local Communities
When disaster strikes, United Hands Relief’s priority is to first start saving lives, then to help vulnerable communities hit hard by disaster (natural or man-made) come back stronger.
UHR reaches communities in dire need during and in the aftermath of disasters. From here in the USA to Lebanon, Yemen, Syria, Palestine, Rohingya, Kashmir, Iraq, Bosnia, and East Africa – we make sure people have access to safe clean water for drinking and sanitation. Our teams provide shelter, food COVID-19 health kits, and other life-saving necessities vital for survival to families affected. We support families, especially children through education, vocational training, and sustainable development. We help rebuild communities by helping families become self-sufficient through our development programs. Our goal is to instill hope and restore the dignity of many in need.
After almost three years, Rohingya families were forced to abandon their homes. Today, these displaced families live in the world’s largest refugee settlement – COX’s Bazar refugee camp in Bangladesh. UHR continues to provide aid to Rohingya communities.
Whether natural or man-made, the world is facing a scale of crises and disasters that we have never witnessed before. We need your help – you can help build shelters to protect families in crisis, supply clean water to prevent the spread of deadly diseases and ensure that people who have lost everything have the basic essentials for survival.
