Program areas at Assist International

Assist International is a humanitarian organization that addresses the needs of the world's most vulnerable people. This is accomplished in low and middle income countries through efforts in global health, vulnerable children, water and social business enterprises (poverty solutions). Assist International has a successful history working with a wide variety of partners including foundations, hospital groups, service clubs, corporations, faith-based groups and individual donors. Projects have been completed in over sixty countries lifting thousands beyond mere existence to a hopeful and productive future.
In 2019 the oxygen:assist program made significant strides to reduce cost of medical oxygen to health centers within the amhara region of ethiopia and generate enough revenue in the process to make the ppp program sustainable. Two oxygen production plants have been constructed and installed in amhara and production facilities were completed; 17,400+ large oxygen cylinders have been distributed, 69 health facilities served, and 221 clinicians trained on oxygen. In-country management technicians have been hired, trained and now operate the two oxygen plants, launching the medical oxygen business. Progress continues to be made to find viable ways to make it sustainable as well as provide medical oxygen at a low cost. As the oxygen production business model has come to life, many within the government are considering how this sustainable business model along with the ppp platform can impact other healthcare needs that will impact the lives of people in ethiopia. Progress has also been made on a third oxygen production plant nearing completion in nejo, ethiopia.
In 2019, Assist International's community:assist, continued to grow in partnership with world vision, a large national warehouse wholesaler donates items which are distributed to those in needboth locally and internationally. Through this partnership, Assist International distributed over 6.1m worth of goods to over 48 partner nonprofits in 2019, including local and global recipient partners; this also included many victims of California wildfires in addition to distributing goods to orphanages and humanitarian outreaches. In 2019, local volunteers helped sort 3,189 pallets out of our warehouse which were distributed to the homeless, the elderly, survivors of domestic violence and trafficking, crisis pregnancy centers, impoverished families, foster children, orphanages and fire victims. Items were distributed to those in need in the us, mexico, nicaragua, el salvador, honduras and romania.
