Global Relief: Who we are and what we do
We are currently distributing foodparcels to displaced people in Middle East.
We saw many people this week staying in uncompleted open buildings in desperate need of shelter, basis needs...
We are also raising funds for tents, milkpowder, blankets before approaching winter, rainy season.
Global Relief (GRf) is in contact with groups in the IRAQ, Middle East who are working in Multitude camps for internally displaced people ( IDP) and know best what the changing priorities of the IDP's are. Your donation towards the GRf Iraq Emergency Food Fund will enable us to partner with these groups in addressing the most urgent needs of survivors.
Global Relief (GRf) is a South African based relief organisation facilitating professional and other volunteers to assist people 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.
