Who We Are
We’re an organization of more than 60 volunteer staff and 5,500 global volunteers who are committed to serving refugee families with love and dignity. We focus on filling in the gaps to provide critical aid to refugee families in Greece, Jordan, Tanzania, Bangladesh, the US – Mexico border, and beyond. Specifically, our aid falls into three programs: Welcome Baby, Community Development, and Emergency Response.
This program provides families with the items they need for their newborn: a baby bed, clean diapers, a baby carrier, onesies, towels, soap, a handmade toy or blanket, and sanitary pads for mom.
We work with refugee camps to help support residents by bringing dignity and normalcy through quality of life initiatives such as women-friendly spaces, community gardens, playgrounds for children, and much more.
Our teams on the ground identify emergency needs so that we are able to fund and distribute in real time. These items include sleeping bags, bug spray, fresh food, and more.

From Our Donors & Volunteers
“It’s difficult to watch the global refugee crisis and not do something about it. Volunteering with Carry the Future allows me to directly impact the most vulnerable. It’s life changing; we are able to directly support refugees in need and give voice to the voiceless.”Afia Jalali
“I donate because I know help is given directly into the hands of those who need it so much. Carry the Future’s aid programs focus on empowering refugees and offering some dignity.”Melissa Francis
“I volunteer with Carry the Future because I can directly make an impact in the lives of refugee families. These experiences have made my world smaller. I am a vehicle for good. It means a lot to make a difference on behalf of this organization.”Susannah Monteith
“Most refugee babies are born into dire circumstances. Basic necessities are hard to come by. We have a sacred trust and responsibility to change that reality when and where we can. I choose to give to Carry the Future because my grandma heart can’t bear the thought of any child going without.”Leann Hansen
