Humanitarian service is at the heart of FAAVM’s work. Working together, we identify the most crucial needs, and we support them in humanitarian efforts that transform lives of people around the world.
Disaster & Trauma Relief
In response to natural and manmade disasters, the FAAVM collects funds and goods for immediate and long term material aid and care, provides and supports trauma relief and stress-management programs, and long-term rehabilitation. These emergency services include food, clothes, medicine and shelter, Doctors, counsellors and other physical and mental health experts form an integral part of such immediate relief efforts.
For survivors of disasters who have experienced severe physical and emotional trauma, material help alone is not sufficient. Alleviating the trauma and helping people to reclaim their lives is essential. FAAVM’s Trauma Relief Program (TRP) plays an essential role in our overall disaster relief efforts, and help teach victims how to process their emotions and stress in order to shift their attention away from reliving the past towards future possibilities, aiming to help gain stress and trauma management techniques, healthy coping strategies, stronger community bonds and a sense of personal power.
Responsibility and an attitude of selfless service are the foundation of true empowerment. Peace, happiness and compassion are the intrinsic nature of humanity. Socio-economic development must be built on human values to be sustainable.
True relief can only happen when disaster survivors are completely rehabilitated physically and emotionally. In the arc of every international disaster, there’s a point when people shift their attention away from the tragedy.

Send people, but only those who can save lives
