Why Relief for Human Suffering Foundation?

There are many reasons to support Relief for Human Suffering Foundation's work.
Here are a few:

We are a relatively small nonprofit organization with a big mission. We are obsessed with creating a world where a person’s ability to see does not depend on the location of their birth or the color of their skin.

We have pledged up to 10% of our own money and 100% of public donations go toward our mission of restoring eyesight to impoverished people in developing countries.

We partner with trusted local organizations with the required expertise and logistics to deliver care to the impoverished so more of your money goes to the people that needs it and not to overheads.

We are transparent with our operations/ finances and received the highest rating for transparency (Platinum) from Guidestar within one year of our founding.

R4HS Foundation’s work for visually impaired people and human suffering in developing countries rely entirely on voluntary donations. Donors and philanthropists are critical to helping provide life changing and life saving relief for impacted people in developing countries.
