For 15 years, Embrace Relief Foundation has been a force for good in the world, teaming up with donors, volunteers and partner organizations to bring lasting, positive change to the lives of people in need in every corner of the globe. In October, Embrace Relief will celebrate this milestone anniversary, providing an opportunity to reflect on how far we’ve come – and how much more we still have left to do.

When Embrace Relief was founded in 2008, its initial purpose was to provide relief to the victims of natural disasters. While this remains an important aspect of our organization, our mission has expanded considerably over the years. In 2023, we now offer eight humanitarian relief programs, providing life-changing aid to hundreds of thousands of people in dozens of countries each year.

Embrace Relief’s 15th anniversary is a celebration, not just of the hard-working staff and volunteers who make our organization go, but of humanity itself. We’ve seen firsthand what can happen when we all work together in common purpose: we can transform lives and create a more prosperous, happier, safer, healthier world.

But this 15th anniversary is also about you. None of Embrace Relief’s work is possible without the spark of generosity provided by our donors. If you have ever donated a single dollar to Embrace Relief, given an hour of your time to volunteer, or told a friend or family member about our programs, this 15th anniversary is a celebration of you, too.

Below, we want to share a part of our story by outlining our achievements over the past 15 years. We want to show you why we’re celebrating – and why, if you’re part of Embrace Relief’s extended family of donors and volunteers, we hope you’ll celebrate with us and continue to show your support.

A Legacy Of Helping People in Need

Since 2008, Embrace Relief has supported some of the world’s most vulnerable people – those living in extreme poverty, those impacted by natural disasters and health challenges, those who suffer through no fault of their own. The world is a challenging and uncertain place. But one of the lessons we’ve learned over the past 15 years is that change is possible. When we work together, we can change the lives of millions of people in real, meaningful, and positive ways:
