HWPL, Disaster Relief Aid
Preserving and protecting the precious gift of life,
Peace Work of HWPL
Our founding principle of humanitarian aid is the preservation and protection of human life, as the heaven’s light, rain and air freely preserve life for all of humanity without partiality or discrimination. Our HWPL humanitarian campaigns range from disaster relief, minority rights advocacy and commemorating our fallen. In a universe where life exists in vast splendor only in our world, we envision a world that treasures the precious gift of life from above across cultures, nationalities, and beliefs.
Disaster Relief, HWPL Peace Work
HWPL volunteers are quick to respond with relief aid in the aftermath of natural disasters, such as Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines in 2014 and Tohuku Japan Earthquake and Tsunami in 2011 by providing resources and counseling support. Working as a bridge between regional agencies and HWPL’s network of partnerships, HWPL volunteers quickly organize needed resources such as clean water, food, clothing, transportation and first aid assistance to rehabilitate and stabilize disaster zones. Furthermore, on-site, HWPL volunteers provide interpersonal support by deescalating stressful situations and counseling—building brighter outlooks with meaningful friendships.
HWPL Peace Work, Minority Rights Advocacy
Minority groups, as defined by the United Nations, are “indigenous communities, peoples and nations having a historical continuity with pre-invasion and pre-colonial societies that developed on their territories and consider themselves distinct from other sectors of the societies now prevailing on those territories.” These minority groups are often underrepresented and faced with discrimination from a dominating majority social or cultural population. HWPL is active in countries like Romania, Guatemala and Peru to support the Roma people and indigenous populations like the Mayan and Inca communities living in these regions. HWPL volunteers work as advocates to strengthen minority population rights to government participation, decision-making and education as well as the right to enjoy and practice their cultures. Most notably, HWPL became the first non-profit organization to be officiated as the ambassador organization to the Roma community in October 2013 by the Romani National Assembly.
