Global Refuge Stories brings front line information from the ongoing efforts of Global Refuge International and Global Goods and Coffee, non-profits with a commitment to providing humanitarian assistance to those whose needs are not being met, and who strive to be with those people in their suffering and healing. Their mission is to provide an emergency lifeline to victims of disease, war, and disaster. Our mission at Global Refuge Stories is to make sure that their Herculean efforts do not go unnoticed or unremarked, and to serve as the global voice of their efforts.
What they do isn’t pretty or glamorous. Much of the time, their accomplishments go unnoticed simply because there’s no easy way to package and market what they do. Disaster and war make the news, but not the behind-the-scenes recovery efforts that take place around the clock.
Both organizations are “feet on the ground” undertakings and provide all assistance through their incredible network of volunteers and through donations by citizens the world over who know how important it is to help others, no matter which culture they belong to. For we all belong to the culture of humanity.
Global Goods and Coffee helps to sustain Global Refuge’s projects with its threefold nature: coffee, resale items and global goods. Located in Arvada, Colorado, their shops raise funds for the provisions (which include medical training and supplies, food, shelter, clean drinking water, and many other necessities), and is also staffed entirely by volunteers.
