Our Work

Programs

Texas Winter Emergency

Historic snowstorms have brutalized Texas, cutting off power to millions. Families no longer have electricity, leaving them unable to heat their homes or cook meals. Food is in short supply, and the death toll is rising. Penny Appeal USA stands ready to help the Lonestar state with your help.

Indonesia

Devastating tsunamis and earthquakes, as recently as January 15, 2020, have rocked various regions, leaving people without homes, utilities, and access to medical care.

Coronavirus Emergency

The virus continues to spread globally and across the United States. As of March 27, there were over 500,000 confirmed cases worldwide and over 80,000 in the USA (more than any other country). Here and across the world, we are responding by providing families in need with access to food, hygiene products, protective equipment and financial assistance in the form of Hardship Grants.

Yemen Emergency

The blockade on Gaza has led to shortages of basic items such as food and fuel, leading to a humanitarian disaster.

Lebanon Emergency Response

In addition to the economic crisis that has crippled the country these last 12 months, the recent spread of COVID-19 has overwhelmed Lebanon’s health system, which is not able to keep up with the demand. We are sending much needed medical supplies into Lebanon. Photo Credit: AP

Syria Emergency

Conflict and flooding has displaced thousands of families, leaving them without shelter or healthcare and placing them at greater risk for contracting COVID19. Your support can help provide critical PPE, medicines, COVID19 testing, and other vital services.
