During war and disasters, we all want to help any way we can. Donating money to worthwhile charities is usually the quickest and best way to make an impact.
Unfortunately, it's often difficult to know which organizations are worth our support.
To help you with deciding, Edry and Associates has researched and recommend the following destinations for donations.
We've divided these charities into two groups - the first section to charities dedicated to helping human refugees, and the second section to charities helping pets/animals along with their owners.
Please give generously.
