Mission

Whether it is war, natural disaster, a lack of clean drinking water, a shortage of food, the need for clothing, or the necessity of medical supplies in underdeveloped nations, we strive to be there, giving a helping hand. We lend a hand in combating the leading killers of young children across the globe through the funding of the following long-term programs: child feeding programs and emergency relief programs, medical donations, hygiene programs, HIV/AIDs programs and immunizations and community water programs. Our hope is to empower people to help themselves and then help others.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We aim to support our partners and projects around the world. In Kenya, Uganda and Zambia ASC supports food programs at schools and orphanages. It is impossible to run a school in any of these places without feeding the children at least once a day. Most of them come from desperately poor homes where there is not enough food for everybody. For them, the meal at school is the only meal of the day. But keeping the children fed is the biggest challenge for our project partners, and the largest budget item.

In Haiti, ASC supports a community food program that prepares more than 1600 meals a day for needy children and a rescue clinic for starving children. Natural disasters, disease and lack of education, infrastructure and economic opportunity keep families struggling for survival. Similar problems prevent many people in the Philippines from breaking the cycle of poverty. We support a center for abused children and a supplemental feeding program for children in the community.

We aim to ensure that our partners have the ability to continue to ensure these programs for their needy children and to help as many children as possible break the cycle of poverty.

For over 30 years, ASC has been delivering emergency aid and relief to suffering people in such places as Ethiopia, Malawi, Somalia, and South Sudan. In the last 2 years alone, through your generosity, we have provided over 1,000,000 meals per year to children and families facing extreme hunger. This is an astounding number that represents tens of thousands of desperate people being fed and cared for, because you cared enough to send your donation.

ASC has teams and partners in place to achieve our goals. As you can imagine, however, the food and aid we deliver to these people only goes so far. In each village or Internally Displaced People's compound we deliver aid, we must decide who is at the head of the line for food: who are the children whose malnutrition is eviscerating their tiny bodies? Next on the list will be those children whose malnutrition is not quite so severe and life threatening. And so on. Our teams have decades of experience going to places where few others are willing to go and the experience in ensuring that our aid is going to those in need.

ASC has had great success providing medicine to our partners and food and support to our many projects around the world. In Africa, thousands of children die every year due to illnesses from drinking contaminated water. Especially in rural areas, access to clean drinking water is extremely problematic for poor families. Few homes have piped water or a well and even fewer families can afford to buy clean water. Instead, they get water for drinking, cooking and cleaning from an open source like a river or pond that is polluted by animal remains, parasites and human waste. Not only is the water dangerous for human consumption, it also needs to be brought to the home, which is traditionally the women's and children's responsibility. So it is not uncommon for women and children to spend hours walking through the heat to the water source and carrying heavy jerry cans back. It's back-breaking labor that needs to be repeated every single day! We help provide clean water sources for these families so that they can focus on education instead of taking these day long journeys to seek clean water.
