Children in disaster areas, have special needs that are not always answered by traditional relief agencies. These needs are being individually met by Phoenix for Children.
Phoenix provides relief services to children who are affected by climatic and geo-political disasters. These relief efforts are in terms of clothing, building supplies, personal hygiene supplies, educational materials sometimes food and hydration.
Striving to be a global leader in disaster relief and a primary resource for nonprofits consistently bridging the gap between victims’ needs and available resources.
Our board members including the founder have had experience in various relief efforts in Haiti, Vietnam, and the Dominican Republic. From constructing single room schoolhouses, feeding, hydrating large masses of people to rescues at sea. Along with our volunteers primarily Veterans we have responded to natural disasters here at home. In Oklahoma and Louisiana in response to hurricane and tornados, flooding in the Ohio River areas of Kentucky and Indiana valleys.
Our success is a result of many years in the trucking, sorting and logistics of moving freight coupled with years of military operations. Two of our board members the CEO and Treasurer have spent over 60 years combined in the management of FEDEX and UPS companies. We have been drafting a plan for a site designed for receiving goods sorting and packaging for shipment by container ship. Initially these containers will have clothing and supplies for Ukraine women and children. On a more local level we have established agreements for logistical support with a major trucking company, as well as working with an air charter service for national relief deployments. On a more localized level we have plans for a direct truck to customer (charity partners) operation service. This service shall provide deliveries and pickup in the 100-mile radius of Plymouth and Cape Cod. This will allow us to support our local community directly, reduce overhead cost and provide timely deliveries.
We are growing our network and partnerships with several small charities, we know we can help make a difference in children’s lives as well as help these charities continue their work by providing additional logistics and materials needed to sustain their programs. We will and can directly improve the lives of many children and families locally with our truck, delivering needed clothing and supplies, networking with seasonal drives supporting food banks.
We would like you to support us in our mission to help our community both locally and globally. You can:
· Donate yearly, monthly or one-time donations. No amount is too small.
· Help us by becoming an ambassador where your efforts are used to solicit your network of business and social connections for support.
· Volunteer to help us in several capacities, from working in the warehouse to administrative duties.
The donations we receive will help us improve the lives for children and families in our community as well as have a big impact to women and children in global hotspots.

During some of our experiences we found out that larger organizations often miss the mark either due to money spread too thinly or bureaucratic procedures restricting the aid. An example was in the construction of a one room schoolhouse in a small village near the Haitian boarder in the Dominican Republic. The supplies being used were recycled wood and metal, even the nails themselves were recycled bent and had to be straighten. Within in a short amount of time on site it was obvious more time and energy were being spent on preparing materials to be used than using them for construction. After some discussions a trip was organized to a town about 30 miles away where unused new materials were sourced and brought back to the village. The result was a roof and interior structure of sound materials lasting many years. As a result of the new materials original recycled materials were then used to construct several desks and benches which had not been originally planned. The remaining materials were used to repair many of the huts in the village, The rest was used to make improvements to the local village bodega.
