There are many ways you can help us achieve our mission of providing humanitarian aid, educational programming, and personal empowerment to refugees around the world. Help us lift hands that hang down.
Here are a few ways you can get involved:
Your donations enable LHI to do so much for the refugee families we serve. From buying goats for Syrian refugee families living in the deserts of Jordan to providing female- and child-friendly spaces at our refugee center in Serres, Greece, your gifts give thousands of refugees hope and empowerment.
DONATE AID SUPPLIES
Our warehouse in American Fork, Utah collects, sorts, packs, and ships aid to refugee camps in Jordan, Lebanon, Somalia, Bangladesh, and as of 2019, our southern US border. According to aid distribution reports, your support has enabled more than 250,000 refugees to receive critical aid from LHI since its founding in 2016, but the need is ongoing.
HOST A FUNDRAISER
That’s right! You can host your own fundraiser on behalf of LHI. We provide all the tools you need to create an online fundraiser and share it on social media. Peer-to-peer fundraising is very effective, and you will be amazed at the outpouring of support you will receive from your friends and family. Right now, we are raising funds to buy 1,000 more goats for Syrian refugee families in Jordan.
LHI relies on legions of extraordinary volunteers to make such a big impact in the lives of refugees around the world. We simply couldn’t do what we do without your help. We always have a wide array of volunteer opportunities for individuals and groups of all sizes, both domestically and internationally.
LHI is very active on social media, and following us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter is one of the best ways to stay informed about our ongoing refugee aid work, read stories by and about the refugees we serve, and stay up-to-date on current topics related to refugees worldwide.
STAY IN THE LOOP
Signing up for our email list is another great way to stay informed about LHI’s work benefitting refugees around the world. You’ll get stories from the field delivered right to your inbox. Our monthly newsletter includes stories by and about refugees, volunteer spotlights, and other meaningful information.
SPREAD THE WORD
One of the easiest things you can do is to share your desire to help with your friends and family and tell them about LHI and other organizations like it. There’s a lot of misinformation out there about the refugee crisis, and sharing facts can help others understand why refugees are in critical need of our help.
