Who We Are
We are a global nonprofit organization made up of people willing to give everything to bring life-saving solutions to those in need. We do this by assisting orphans & vulnerable people, strengthening healthcare systems, partnering with local organizations to magnify our impact, and equipping communities facing suffering and hardship.
What We Do
Assist International provides life-giving solutions for children, families, and communities around the world that bring health, opportunity, and hope.
A Team of World Changers
What We Do
In partnership with foundations, hospital groups, service clubs, corporations, and individual donors, Assist International has completed over 600 projects. Whether it’s building schools for children in Uganda, providing advanced medical equipment in Vietnam, or establishing orphanages in Romania, we strive for excellence and sustainability. From the tip of South America (Punta Arenas, Chile) to the mountains of Bulgaria, our vision is to help the world’s most vulnerable people realize a hopeful, productive future.
How It Started
Today, we continue to design and implement humanitarian programs that build capacity, develop opportunities, and save lives around the world. With all of our programs, we believe the best way to provide effective and sustainable solutions that bring about lasting change is by working with in-country partners and coming alongside to empower them and increase their capacity.
The work Bob and Charlene started more than 30 years ago in Romania has grown throughout the world and has drawn many others into a determination to serve on the edge of suffering and hope.
