WHAT WE DO
Crisis Aid started by providing 2-pound bags of rice to people in South Sudan. Our work quickly evolved to serve people in crisis living in 11 different countries. Together with our partners, we are refusing to do nothing. Saving lives, saving souls, and changing futures for one person at a time in desperate need of hope, health, and wholeness.
Crisis Aid concentrates efforts in East Africa and the United States serving children and families who are in crisis situations. Whether it be famine, disease, natural disaster, or sex trafficking, Crisis Aid is there.
SAVING LIVES, SAVING SOULS, AND CHANGING FUTURES.
We are committed to “helping the helpless” with relief efforts both locally and globally. We equip those who are beyond the crisis to take responsibility by providing programs that train, inspire, and move them to independent, self-sustained living.
The Crisis Aid Family is large and growing and we invite you who “refuse to do nothing” to join in our mission to impact lives, souls, and futures! With your partnership, the prayers and dreams of thousands of children and families will be answered.
Our 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.
WE EXIST TO SAVE LIVES, SAVE SOULS, AND CHANGE FUTURES
Often we respond during times of natural disaster, famine, war, or other crisis by coordinating emergency relief distributions to provide food, water, blankets, and other critical supplies. Several of our emergency relief projects have since turned into long-term development projects.

In September 2000, our Founder, 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. Today, we currently concentrate our efforts in East Africa and the United States.
Once Pat took that first step to “do something”, others quickly joined enabling Crisis Aid to deliver a wide variety of resources over the years. Together with our partners, we have provided more than 17.8 million pounds of food, served 2.6 million adults and malnourished children, and 1,378 sex trafficking victims helped, the youngest being 4 years of age.
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 that train, inspire, and move them to independent, self-sustaining living.
The Crisis Aid Family is large and growing. We invite anyone who “refuses to do nothing” to join in our mission to impact lives, souls, and futures! With your partnership, the prayers and dreams of thousands more children and families will be answered.
