Humanitarian Aid
Doctor-to-Doctor Program
Children of War Refugee Camps
Mercy Medical Evacuations

In each country we use trusted local or international personnel to monitor delivery and distribution of supplies.  This prevents diversion of supplies from their intended recipients.  We have developed a wide network of donors who provide antibiotics, medical equipment and supplies, medical texts, and children’s shoes, clothing and toys.  Thousands of children's' lives have been touched by these shipments.

Romania
Since 1991, Nobody's Children has shipped hundreds of thousands of pounds of medical supplies, medicines, clothing, and orphanage equipment to Romania. 

  • In 1998 we bought five members of the Romanian child care hierarchy to New Hampshire to demonstrate local child care practices and inspire them to cooperate with our efforts.  They have become our enthusiastic supporters, and with their help, our volunteer teams over the last several years have refurbished the children's' quarters in orphanages in Brasov and Bucharest, replacing the iron barred cribs with modern youth beds.

  • In the summer of 2000, our volunteer teams used our shipments to establish the first kindergarten in the  orphanage in Brasov, as well as a special Infant Stimulation room.

  • We have purchased a home in Craiova, Romania, and converted it into a group home for 10 to 20 orphans awaiting new homes abroad.  This home, called Casa Katarina, has a resident staff and social worker. Some of these children return to their biological families when home conditions improve, and some have come to new homes in New Hampshire.

Bosnia
Since 1993, over 10,00 pounds of aid has been shipped to the war zone in Bosnia, and distributed in Sarajevo, East Mostar, and Capljina.  This includes an ambulance and complete hospital shipped in a US C5A transport to Tuzla. 

  • Through 1999, our volunteers there solicited and distributed caravans of supplies from the British Isles and Italy for our camps there.

  • For six years we ran support and youth programs in the Tasovcici and Wagon refugee camps.  Now the camps are either closed or self-sufficient settlements.

  • During the Kosovo war, we supported a soup kitchen for the Kosovo refugees who had fled to the Mostar area.

  • In 1996 we purchased a mobile dental clinic, which is situated outside Mostar.  We continue to fund the operation of this clinic, which provides free dental care to hundreds of children each month.

  • Every summer since 1993 we have supported a summer camp for refugee children, to allow them escape from the confines of their daily life.

  • Every Christmas we assist in the distribution of Christmas packages to the refugee families of the Capljina area.   These gifts have been the annual project of the Arlinghaus family of Kentucky.

  • Since 2000 we have been operating a youth program in the orphanage in Mostar, including classes in English and computer use.

  • In November 2000 we opened the Hasim Resic Fitness Center in Mostar.  This is a workout facility located in the orphanage but open to the public for a small fee.  This center will provide an outlet for the unemployed youth of the area, as well as a source of income to help provide food for the orphanage.

  • In November 2003, we finished construction of a permanent dental clinic in affiliation with the Mostar Health Department.  Named the Nobody's Children Arlinghaus Dental Clinic, in honor of the extended family in Kentucky who were instrumental in facilitating this clinic, we now can offer modern services free to those who cannot pay, and at a reduced rate for those who can pay.

  • Plans are now underway for a center for orphans in Bucharest; fundraising is underway, details to follow.

United States
In 2005 in the wake of Hurricaine Katrina, we collected and shipped thousands of pounds of school supplies organized into individual backpacks to schoolchildren in Louisiana.
