Update - October 2017

SIDR has just acquired 58,000 pounds of food for relief in Puerto Rico.

In the coming days we will need funds to help move this to those in desperate need. This is all dehydrated food that requires clean water to re-hydrate so we are looking for assistance in water filtration systems Our urgent needs at this time are donations to assist with transportation and clean water. Please donate to our efforts. Every dollar counts and NO donation is considered too small!!

It all began with Cyclone Sidr in Bangladesh,where we became involved in a shelters project. We recognized the importance of volunteers in a very specialized sector. As a result SIDR was born. Following Bangladesh, we went to Gonaive, Haiti in the wake of Hurricanes Ike and Hannah. There we assisted in the recovery process, including: the rehabilitation of over 300 wells, to using our expertise in safe site analysis for shelter projects, to latrine project design.

Haiti's earthquake had Sidr training crews and running several demolition crews to clear away sites. From there construction of over 750 climate resistant homes . We lead the way forward in training safe demolition and proper construction techniques both in Haiti and in the Philippines.

It is our mission to teach the locals with whom we work how to organize and implement a long term solution to natural disaster. 

We follow up each disaster by setting up livelihood projects that the people can rebuild their lives and move forward with.

Disaster response should always be all phases as Sidr shows throughout our projects!

 Our board consists of building contractors, engineer, water and sanitation experts, green building professionals, a doctor, and a child rights lawyer , and an agricultural expert on high yield farming on small plots. All dedicated volunteers.

Our volunteers come from all over the globe to assist and train the local community affected.. giving them hope and empower them for a brighter future.
