Basics Global: A Blessing for PH

Basics Global is a non-profit organization based in Dubai, UAE. Their website, http://www.basicsglobal.org/, talks more about what they do.

Basics Global was founded in the U.A.E. in 2009  by Lisa Kingsley a British expat who has resided in the Middle East for more than 8 years.  First concentrating on the Middle East predominantly in the U.A.E. the dedicated volunteers have been involved in supporting many causes, from domestic workers who have fled their employers, providing supplies to hard working labourers assisting in critical medical cases and fundraising for special needs children ,

Basics Global now assists communities all over the world and is dedicated to working with those who are impacted by disasters and unrest.  This is made possible through dedicated volunteers and financial supporters

Lisa and my mom met in Dubai, UAE. They became friends since then. Our family are so privilege to be the ground volunteers for the Philippines.
