Lewes, DE, July 24, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- United for Better Ltd., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit announces that its selection committee has approved disbursements to five organizations recognized as outstanding in their contributions to the betterment of humankind.
Outstanding charities singled out for excellence and advancement of the betterment of people around the world.
The most recent addition is Immigrant Legal Resource Center (ILRC). The refugee and immigrant center for education and legal services that has catapulted into the international spotlight with recent U.S. southern border immigration politics.
United for Better spokesperson Nick Peterson said that the selection of ILRC was consistent given its history, “We believe in families not being separated at the US border and we are working to bring about reunification with our partners. Families are one of the bedrocks of our communities and we have it in our power to prevent the disruption of this fundamental structure so we feel compelled to act swiftly now at this time, when we have momentum already established by the many fine individuals who have already contributed and continue to contribute to these causes.”
Organizations recognized by United for Better:
Doctors without Borders:
Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is a private international association founded in 1971. Our mission is to provide lifesaving medical care to those most in need.
Last year, several states in central and southern Mexico were affected by separate earthquakes that left hundreds dead, thousands injured, and many people homeless. In response, MSF deployed seven teams across Oaxaca, Puebla, Morelos, State of Mexico, and Mexico City.
“Patients tell us that land mines, booby traps, and other improvised explosive devices are planted in fields, along roads, on the roofs of houses, and under staircases,” said Satoru Ida, MSF head of mission in Syria. “Household items like teapots, pillows, cooking pots, toys, air conditioning machines, and refrigerators are also reportedly rigged to explode as people return home for the first time after months or years in displacement.” MSF’s emergency clinic in Raqqa city has treated hundreds of victims of explosives. Increased demining action and risk education are urgent, alongside improved access to emergency medical care. To ensure independence from political pressures, MSF receives no government funding for its work in Syria.
Direct Relief is a humanitarian aid organization, active in all 50 states and more than 80 countries, with a mission to improve the health and lives of people affected by poverty or emergencies –without regard to politics, religion, or ability to pay.
Direct Relief was chosen for recognition by United for Better based on their established history of providing medical assistance to people in need around the world.
