Reviews for Life For Relief and Development

Rating: 5 stars  

In the summer of 2006 the Middle East was ravaged with war between politicians and factions in which innocent civilians paid the deadliest price. The images of maimed children, dying youth and pain stricken eyes not only moved me, but it shook me. It quaked my soul and threw my body into a spiral of grief that I refused to allow to continue. A group of students who were as stubborn as I was to make a change came together to try and plan a benefit concert at NYU. The concert wasn’t the most successful, but I couldn’t accept failure. Failure wasn’t an option— I manifested my guilt in failing and used all my energy to organize a fundraiser of sorts through the help of Life for Relief and Development. I asked my local ISCJ to provide a room to collect donations. ISCJ made announcements to its congregation asking for non-perishable foods, new or like new clothes, first aid supplied, diapers, feminine products and other necessary needs refugees and the wounded could use to rebuild their everyday lives. I also advertised online and emailed local houses of worship from every religion. We received so many donations in the room we were storing them in that the piles were taller than any of us. I enlisted some 20 volunteers to organize, label and load the products onto a 18-wheeler flatbed tractor trailer container. We filled the entire container. The boxes that Life for Relief and Development weren’t enough. My family went out and bought more boxes out of pocket. We even had products that we couldn’t fit in the container because the container was at capacity. Those products we then chose to donate to local charity bodies suggested by the ISCJ.

I volunteered and worked for the organization for ten years, it remarkable when it comes to transparency and accountability. They are very tough when it comes to allocating resources, since donor is a very invalueable asset to the organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

This organization is right where the help is most needed and acting fast when emergency strikes. Information and feedback, update and ongoing support, are just some of many highlights of LIFE for Relief and Development.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide help for so many more kids and familys

Life for Relief and Development is in my opnion an extraordinary organization deducated to help those in need from USA to the rest of the world. When I signed for Orphan program, I was overjoyed to find out how much care and attention to details has been placed on each and every one orphan and donor, all in order to serve. I could not be more pleased with all that Life For Relief And Development does. GO LIFE!!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Orphan Department and Date Base Department. Extraordinary efforts made by everyone are reason that I continue to support orphans through Life For Relief And Development.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

just like to see them in other countrys like Bosnia and Herzegovina for exemple.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the follow up, honest and sincere communication, and extra steps to make sure that I as donor have all information needed for my personal records.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

extremly polite, honest, helpful, knowledgable, caring and respectful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

HELP SO MANY MORE ORPHANS AND FAMILIES IN NEED THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.

Ways to make it better...

I could give more. Life could not do any better then what they already do!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

to keep hard work and encourage public to give even so we are experiencing such difficult time when work is not available and income is tight.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I WISH ALL THE BEST TO LIFE FOR RELAIF AND DEVELOPMENT AND PRAY THAT THEY CONTINUE TO GROW FOR THE SAKE OF SO MANY THAT NEED HELP IN THIS WORLD.
