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.
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 for disaster relief efforts around the globe.
Every year, natural disasters such as floods, tornados, wildfires, etc. affect approximately 180 million people worldwide, causing displacement, property destruction, injury, and death. Because of this, Embrace Relief was originally founded in 2013 to aid people impacted by all kinds of unforeseen disasters, natural and manmade, domestically and abroad. To date we have spent $1.4 million for disaster relief efforts and helped over 422,610 people not just survive, but rebuild their lives in the wake of such tragedies, including those greatly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

DISASTER RELIEF PROJECTS
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
Although the world is catching a glimpse of the light at the end of the tunnel for the tragic COVID-19 pandemic, the highly infectious disease is still wreaking havoc around the globe. Millions of people are still becoming infected, hundreds of thousands are still dying, and millions are still struggling financially and to find their next meal. Thankfully, Embrace Relief has been a staunch supporter of those suffering from the pandemic from the very beginning. In 2020 we distributed to hospitals over 50,000 masks, 650,000 packs of antibacterial wet wipes, 800 face shields, 4,000 hot meals for frontline workers, 800 paper towels, and over 20 gallons of antibacterial soap. We also assisted over 80 families with monetary support and distributed over 18,000 food packages. In 2021 we’ve continued our support by distributing over 350,000 packs of antibacterial wet wipes to hospitals, police departments, universities, and shelters, among other places. Yet another significant contribution we made to those ailing in the wake of the coronavirus is the highly successful online fundraiser #StrongerTogether.
We hosted our highly successful online fundraiser #StrongerTogether in May 2020. It was live for almost four hours, was joined by over 5,000 people from all around the world, and featured 12 amazing speakers including Boston Celtics basketball player Enes Kanter, Chief Investigative Correspondent for Inside Edition Lisa Guerrero, Catholic Priest and Professor at Georgetown Thomas Michel, among others. They talked about a wide array of important topics such as how to stay positive during uncertain times, how the pandemic has affected the media industry, how to maintain the decrease in global warming when the quarantine is over, and more. The event raised a staggering $103,000, which provided thousands of people with food and financial support, and helped hospitals restock supplies. With such a whopping success on our hands, we’re looking to go even bigger with a second fundraiser in June 2021—#StrongerTogether 2.0—which aims to assist the millions of people still struggling financially from the pandemic.
