Immediate crisis aid. Hope Hubs in crisis areas – we bring hope!
Pragmatic strategies in cooperation with local players.
In the event of a crisis, along with other aid organizations, we are among the first on the scene. Each organization has a unique approach, different capacities, and resources. We form strategic intersections between the other aid organizations on the ground quickly and comprehensively. We analyze the overall situation, identify and communicate shortfalls in supply, and coordinate and communicate with the local players and government. We create an overarching strategic plan for crisis management. In doing so, we also utilize our global network to provide rapid assistance and bring the necessary expertise to the scene.
Thus, Hope Hubs become a critical success factor in managing the crisis quickly, providing necessary emergency aid, and creating coherence between other organizations. True to the motto: together alone are we strong!
At the end of a crisis, we transform our Hope Hubs into Hope Centers and thus successfully complete the reconstruction process.
In the future, mobile IT systems will further improve Hope Hubs’ efficiency and effectiveness and accelerate information sharing.
The Disaster Relief Team consists of staff from the House of Hope network. They take responsibility for innocents in need during crises like war, famine, or natural disasters.
Through a robust international network of different communities and organizations, they have access to enormous resources and services for emergency relief and reconstruction. House of Hope strategically uses these resources in crisis areas in collaboration with the local government, local initiatives, and partner organizations. We believe we must stand with these people. We were practically helping, listening, loving, and providing them with hope.

CRISIS AID / EVACUATION / FOOD PROGRAM
One week after the start of the war, the House of Hope relief team began providing humanitarian aid along the border of Poland and in turbulent areas of Ukraine.
Relief efforts are coordinated by our center of operations in Lviv (Ukraine). In cooperation with Lviv’s governor, a green corridor has been created between the city and Poland, allowing aid transports to access the country directly. With an extensive network of Ukrainian churches, House of Hope can distribute goods to remote areas. We have brought over 120 trucks carrying 40 tons of food, medicine, and equipment into the country to distribute to people in refugee shelters and active war zones.
We have a fleet of 60 vehicles in active operation to evacuate children and families and distribute relief. These include buses, ambulances, and vans. We use bullet-proof cars to distribute food and medicine to active war zones daily.
