Welcome to our relief aid page! This part of our website is dedicated to helping those in need. Here you’ll be able to find information on which developing areas currently have relief aid sponsored by one of our partners, which ones only have AWH partners to provide relief aid but no sponsors yet, and which developing nations/areas are in dire need of relief aid via donations, organizations, and sponsors.

Humanitarian Aid vs Disaster Relief
Please fill out a form on one of the following pages to receive medical products.
AWH engages in two forms of relief aid: humanitarian aid and disaster relief:
- Humanitarian Aid: This is the kind of relief aid in which we most regularly engage throughout the year. Our humanitarian aid consists of picking up or otherwise recovering surplus medical products which would otherwise become medical waste. We then sort and redistribute the medical products to those in need, domestically and abroad, in order to not only reduce medical waste but also to help save lives.
- Disaster Relief: When disasters occur, AWH strives to act quickly with current and new partners to quickly distribute relief aid in the form of donated medical supplies and medical equipment to areas affected by disasters. These include, but aren’t limited to civil wars and civil unrest, floods, hurricanes, earthquakes, and tsunamis.
Our global vision
Below is a list of the locations domestically and abroad which currently need relief aid in terms of medical supplies and/or medical equipment. We urge readers to strongly consider donating, sponsoring, or getting involved if they feel like they could and would be willing to assist in giving relief aid to any of the areas below. Finally, please contact us if you are in touch with or operate within any area that we might have missed below.
