Disaster Response

GHNI responds to natural disasters and political conflicts after first responders have completed their work. GHNI comes in to help rebuild, empower, and raise up those who were affected.

Our goal is to provide immediate, practical help and transition quickly to sustainability. We mobilize medical teams to supply health care, while our volunteer teams offer construction, counseling, and food. We distribute necessities like blankets, clothing, food, and medicine.

GHNI’s 3-Day Disaster Response Training is available in the United States. GHNI pre-equips volunteers with basic relief skills to help them function effectively as part of a disaster response team.

With the collapse of the Afghan government, many families have been displaced or forced into hiding.  The economy has ceased to function, causing extreme hardship and starvation for most families. The UN reports that 97% of families could be plunged into poverty.  There is a desperate need of immediate short term food relief.


Azerbaijan and Armenia

Since the end of September, conflict broke out between Azerbaijan and Armenia, endangering the lives of everyone in both countries.

We need your help to provide food boxes, hygiene kits, and clothes for children. 



Since 2017, Cameroon has experienced conflict that has forced thousands of families to flee their homes. 

Our goal is to help two villages with over 120 families displaced by providing access to clean water, sanitation, hygiene necessities, as well as sheltering materials.


COVID-19 Relief & Prevention

The COVID-19 crisis is the greatest global health threat of our lifetime. Almost every person on the face of the earth has had their lives disrupted in one way or another.

We need your help to not only provide relief and food security to villages around the world. 


East Africa

Parts of East Africa are suffering one of the worst droughts on record in the last 40 years. Life in this arid and semi-arid region is often difficult, but with the last four rainy seasons failing, the situation is becoming more desperate. 

Would you help us provide 500 households with emergency food and water assistance?



On August 4th a warehouse fire detonated a large amount of explosive material stored in Beirut Port waiting to be disposed of. The aftermath has been tragic. More than 220 people have died and 6,000 more were injured in the explosion. 

We need your help to assist the 300,000 people who were left homeless in Beirut after the destruction in the explosion.


Lesbos, Greece

In September, gigantic fires destroyed the largest refugee camp in Lesbos, Greece, leaving thousands displaced and homeless. Our goal is to help 200 families by distributing food and basic necessities to help those facing homelessness. 

We need your help to distribute 200 food portions for 2 weeks, and offer each family 2 blankets and 2 camping sleep mats. 




The Russians have come; and with over 100,000 troops invaded Ukraine just over a week ago. Hundreds of lives have been lost officially, and probably many more. Between 1 and 5 million refugees are fleeing from Ukraine into neighboring countries. Millions will also be internally displaced to ‘safer’ regions within Ukraine.
