United Hands Relief in USA

The USA is often called the wealthiest country in the world. But, how true is that?  Last year, an estimated 38.1 million people lived below the line of poverty in the United State.  Of that number, 11.9 million are children – that’s almost 1 in every 6 children.

Despite America’s status as being the world’s richest country per capita, the country continues to struggle with unemployment, and wage inequality. 1 in 7 people were at risk of suffering from hunger in the United States, as well as 3.5 million people that were forced to sleep in parks, under bridges, in shelters or cars. Officially, the rate of poverty is estimated at 15.1%, however, some argue that the real poverty rate is much higher placing it at 25%. 

The USDA estimated that 11.1 of US households were food insecure in 2018. This means that approximately 14.3 million households had difficulty providing enough food for their family members due to lack of resources and income.

United Hands Relief and Development helps the poorest of the poor and disaster victims internationally and throughout the United States.  UHR responds to natural disasters by deploying a team of volunteers to the affected areas to help provide relief to the victims. UHR provides food to the poorest of the poor in shelters and to the homeless under bridges. UHR provides backpacks and school supplies to children in needy communities.
