Facts Which Prove We’re Working for a Better World

You’re not about making money. You care about improving the lives of vulnerable people around the world, just like any other humanitarian on this planet. It’s all about making a better world, and it’s admittedly nice to see your work having an effect on the world’s population.

Together working for a better world

We are inspired every day by the efforts of humanitarians around the world. You could be helping to end poverty in Sub-Saharan Africa: since it remains the poorest part of the world.  Or you could be supplying aid after a natural disaster. These are all projects which are close to the heart of every possible humanitarian and humanitarian organization. You and other humanitarians are actively involved in different kinds of work; helping those who need it most and making this a better world. Your compassion inspires us to deliver the best travel experience.

  • Anti-War
    Every year volunteers support humanitarian activities in war-torn countries like Afghanistan and Iraq. These war zones are a threat to the local population. Millions of people face terrible risks including becoming homeless, losing their loved ones and getting wounded by gunfire or bombs. With violence making newspapers’ front pages almost every day, it’s hard to imagine the number of total violence in the world is dropping. But that is indeed what’s happening.
  • Natural Disasters
    Providing immediate assistance and immediate restoration of the affected infrastructure after a natural calamity is essential to maintaining and saving the lives of people affected by such an event. Whether it is to assist refugees, give temporary shelter and food or to set up camps in particular locations. Since the 1940s, the global death toll from extreme weather events is steadily declining. The decline in the death toll from droughts, for example, can be explained by the fact that the global food production has never been higher than it is today. The second important factor for a dramatic decrease in casualties is better disaster preparedness, and more rapid response and delivery of humanitarian aid when disaster strikes.
  • Hunger
    One of the most devastating threats to people all over the world, no one should have to face the day without food.The vast majority of hungry people live in developing regions, which saw a 42 percent reduction in the prevalence of undernourished people between 1990–92 and 2012–14. Despite this progress, about one in eight people, or 13.5 percent of the overall population, remain chronically undernourished in these regions, down from 23.4 percent in 1990–92. While the situation is improving, there is still much work to be done.
  • Preventing Illness
    According to the World Health Organization, the number of people affected by diseases in third world countries is declining. Cases of HIV/AID, diarrheal diseases, and tuberculosis, are typically associated with third world countries. Each year diarrhea kills around 760,000 children under five. Improving water sanitation systems, often supported by humanitarians, caused a decline in the number of diarrheal diseases from 2.2 million to 1.5 million between 2000 and 2012.
  • Poverty
    Many humanitarians travel to different destinations to fight poverty, trying to create a better world for millions of people. The poorest people have limited or no access to health, education and other services. The problems of hunger, malnutrition, and disease afflict the poorest in society. Extreme poverty is a global challenge that many try to fix on a daily basis. The number of people living on less than $1.25 per day has decreased dramatically in the past three decades, from half the citizens in the developing world in 1981 to 21 percent in 2010, despite a 59 percent increase in the developing world population. But this doesn't mean we're done, particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa. Where half of the extremely poor live. The number of poor in the region fell only by 4 million with 389 million people still living in poverty.
