Mission:
International Crisis Aids mission is to assist in sustaining life, bring encouragement to those suffering and collaborating with other relief organizations in bringing necessary foods, materials and medicines to people in times of crisis, particularly where life and death situations exist.

Additionally, we attempt to bring public awareness to these situations and to solicit citizen involvement whenever and wherever possible.

All assistance and resources are traditionally secured in the country of need when possible, so as to develop relations with the local business people and foster a true spirit of cooperation.

To accomplish this vision we will continue to target our efforts in no-go zones; where other organizations cannot or will not go. Frequently this means taking on escalated risks. We feel that these risks are a small price to pay in a game where the stakes are so high: literally, life and death.

To that end, we will continue to act as the primary delivery vehicle for outreach campaigns - a distribution system, partnered with other relief organizations to help those who live under some of the worst and most extreme conditions on earth.
Results:
Crisis Aid has served more than 1.3 million people worldwide. Today we serve more than 15,000 people every month in Ethiopia and Saint Louis, Missouri, U.S.A. Without the support of our partners, thousands of children would be dead from starvation and the effects of malnutrition and hundreds of girls would likely still be stuck in red light districts and with pimps.
