International Crisis Aid

Volunteer Opportunities: Yes


In September 2000, Pat Bradley witnessed the results of the genocide in South Sudan first hand and knew at that moment “doing nothing” was not an option. His helplessness turned into action as he returned to the United States to raise money for starving people in “no-go zones” where starvation, disease and danger are a part of everyday life. He soon returned to provide two pound bags of rice to Sudanese people in need. A humble beginning turned into life-saving efforts for people in crisis living in eleven different countries. In 2002 Crisis Aid was officially incorporated. The agency currently concentrates efforts in Ethiopia and the United States.

Once Pat took that first step to “do something”, others quickly joined enabling Crisis Aid to provide many resources over the years. Together with our partners, we have provided 8.8 million pounds of food to 1.4 million adults and malnourished children, rescued more than 300 girls from sex trafficking and more.

We are committed to “helping the helpless” with relief efforts locally and globally and equipping those who are beyond the crisis to take responsibility by providing programs which train, inspire and move them to independent, self-sustaining living.


" Crisis Aid's mission is to assist in sustaining life, bring encouragement to those suffering and collaborate with other relief organizations in bringing necessary foods, materials and medicines to people in times of crisis, particularly where life and death situations exist. Demonstrating God's love and care for people is our highest and most cherished goal.
