The Refugee Crisis in Tanzania
June 11, 2019
Every year, millions of people are forced to flee from their homes due to war, political instability, economic decline, disease, and violence. Embrace Relief helps those who are displaced by providing food packages, legal counseling, guidance through the asylum process, and rent assistance.
In Tanzania alone, there are over 318,000 people who have nowhere to call home. While the country has long welcomed refugees, it does not have the capacity or resources to accommodate all those who are seeking refuge. Unfortunately, many experience malnutrition and other deprivations. For the majority of these people the closest thing they currently know to safety are refugee camps where they are neglected and lack basic necessities.
Embrace Relief goes beyond just collecting and sending money. Our organization has many volunteers on the ground in Tanzania. Over the course of three days this week alone, they will deliver 500 food packages, which will help an ever-expanding number of people. With every passing day, more and more people hear about this help and flock to seek refuge in the arms of those who care.
Through our multifaceted organizational system, Embrace Relief is able to provide physical, mental, and monetary support to those who need it most. Embrace Relief assists in helping people rediscover hope in not only life but also other people. By no longer having to worry about where their next meal will come from or where they can lay their head at night, they can focus on healing and rebuilding their lives.
