Global Relief: Who we are and what we do 

Global Relief (GRf) is a South African based relief organisation facilitating professional and other volunteers to assist the survivors of major disasters around the world. It all started when a group of volunteer medical people, a psychologist and civil engineers assisted earthquake survivors in Turkey, 1999.

Our medical volunteers provide medical treatment and our civil and structural engineers inspect buildings to determine their safety. Our psychosocial workers are trained to help survivors deal with the emotional trauma of a disaster.

We have provided essential services at major earthquake scenes in Turkey, Algeria, India, Iran and during the Southeast Asian tsunami of December 2004. GRf is a volunteer organisation. We rely heavily on donations from the public in order to continue providing these emergency services. Click here to make a secure online donation towards our emergency fund.
