Embrace Relief was originally founded as a disaster relief organization in 2013 to help victims of natural disasters in the US and to respond to emergency situations in a timely manner. Over time, our disaster relief efforts expanded to other countries and continents.
Every year over 25.8 million people are affected by a natural disaster across the world. The vast majority of disasters are linked to high-impact weather and hydrological events as well as climate extremes, including rapid-onset hazards such as tropical cyclones and slow-onset hazards such as droughts. Floods are the number one deadly disaster in the United States accounting for over 46 percent of disaster-related deaths according to disaster facts.
In times of significant natural disasters, Embrace Relief creates campaigns to alleviate immediate suffering, and provides food, water, clothing, and funds to repair and restore lives. To this day, over $1.3M was spent on disaster relief efforts around the globe.
