Whats involved with humanitarian aid?

IVI’s Humanitarian Aid projects are established to save lives and reduce suffering among refugee camp populations and in emergency aftermath situations by supplying and distributing nutritional goods and aid materials in the effected regions.

We leverage our relationships with various suppliers to humbly accept large end of life product donations. We then utilise individual or corporate sponsorship to fund the shipment of goods to the affected areas. We then coordinate volunteer placements to manage the in country distribution of the aid.

I cannot put into words my experience here, the children, the villages, the people, the staff are some of the best people I have met in my life so far. I am very sad to be leaving, as I’m sure everyone is.
