  2. UNHCR

    The United Nations refugee agency, UNHCR, was established on December 14, 1950, by the United Nations General Assembly. Its primary purpose is to safeguard the rights and well-being of refugees. It strives to ensure that everyone can exercise the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another country, with the option to return home voluntarily, integrate locally or to resettle in a third country. It also has a mandate to help stateless people.

    In more than six decades, the agency has helped tens of millions of people restart their lives. Today, a staff of some 7,685 people in more than 125 countries continues to help some 33.9 million persons.

  3. St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital

    Since opening 50 years ago, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has changed the way the world treats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. No family ever pays St. Jude for the care their child receives and, for every child treated here, thousands more have been saved worldwide through St. Jude discoveries. The hospital has played a pivotal role in pushing U.S. pediatric cancer survival rates from 20 to 80 percent overall, and is the first and only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted to children.

    It is also a leader in the research and treatment of blood disorders and infectious diseases in children. St. Jude was founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas, who believed that no child should die in the dawn of life.

  5. MyLifeSpeaks

    myLIFEspeaks exists to speak up for those around the world who can't speak for themselves by bringing LIFE-giving aid to orphans with and without special needs and showing all people around the globe their worth. This happens by allowing orphans with special needs and typical orphans the opportunity to grow up together in the same family environment--what we call our Campus Family.

    When myLIFEspeaks began, our hopes and dreams were to be able to make a difference in one village in Haiti--a village called, Neply. As our mission statement says, we exist to SPEAK UP for those who can't SPEAK for themselves. This phrase has quickly become more than a mission statement...it is our way of LIFE. Daily in Neply we work to EMPOWER FAMILIES to LIVE LIFE together. We are active in the community providing Pregnant Mother Care, an Infant Feeding Program, a Feeding Program for school-age children, and the cornerstone of what we do--our Mentor Program. We believe that Neply will change through education and HOPE...and our commitment is to be there to see this change happen.
