The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Our Mission is to give Good News for the Poor by providing free of cost quality healthcare, education, food and disaster relief to the poor and needy
In October 2005 a major earthquake shocked the Kashmir Region of Pakistan killing by some estimates over 100,000 people in Kashmir, India and Afghanistan. In response we registered a local NGO (Non Government Organization) the Human Relief Organization to provide primary healthcare, shelter and food for those affected by the earthquake of 2005. In the decade after the earthquake, HRO has continued to provide assistance to those affected by natural disasters and to the poor and needy of Pakistan. Since 2006 HRO has provided such help to over 200,000 people. It is Good News for the Poor. We are continuing to work with the Human Relief Organization from here in the United States. In March 2016 we registered HRO as a 501(C)(3) Nonprofit Charity Organization with tax-exempt status to provide financial accountability here in the United States.
