47% of people in Bangladesh live without good sanitation. That means open sewers, broken toilets, and contaminated water-supplies. 

Check out how Women of Action is changing the lives of Bangladeshis, one toilet at a time.

I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.

“My name is Mohammad Hamadori from Jenin. I am thirteen. I heard from some friends about Relief International and the activities that they do. ..and to present myself to you and tell you about some of my hobbies and some activities I have done with relief.”

“The Relief gave me the power to be useful to my community…and now I have the power and I will to make a difference and because I am ready to give my help to anyone who needs it…through our activities and skills.”

“In the end I want to thank you all for being here…and I hope to see you again.”

Thank you, for the inspiration and the motivation to keep on going.

The hands that help are better far than the lips that pray.
Robert G. Ingersoll (via dogoodatheist)

A simple idea, but wonderful innovation!

WATANA’S NEW HOUSE - THANKS APRIL MISSION: CAMBODIA

Little Baby Watana and his family recently found themselves homeless after they were asked to move from the land they were recently living on, it seemed they were going to have to leave Soksan Village, which they didn’t want as they wanted baby Watana to grow up in the beautiful environment which is Soksan Village!

Then came our April Mission: Cambodia Volunteers to the rescue, with the money they had raised for the trip they were able to help CKF purchase some land and build a new house for the family, so now they never have to worry about being moved out of the village - they are here to stay.

We are so thankful to our volunteers, it means so much to us and to Watana’s family!

TREES ADOPT SELF-DEFENSE

Innovative. How better to raise awareness than to involve those people/things you’re raising awareness about?

When German rainforest non-profit Oro Verde needed help spreading their message, who did they turn to to help? Trees of course!

Placing signs on trees all over a city created a small army of recruiters for the organization without the hefty costs of hiring humans, and it made for a stronger message to get people’s attentions.

its photographs like these that remind me just how lucky i am, we need to share our blessings with others.


We are all fortunate. We all deserve to be, and we should help those who have not had the opportunity to.
