Dear FOCUS USA family and friends,

Some of the most remarkable heroes in our community are those absent from storybooks and headline news. But we know who they are.

Our heroes show us they CARE through their generosity and trust—and they inspire us and our volunteers to continue serving the world’s most vulnerable communities.

Our heroes are living role models who LEAD by showing us how to be good and generous, virtues central to our ethics.

Our heroes are the countless individuals in our community and beyond who unconditionally SUPPORT our cause.

On behalf of each one of us at FOCUS Humanitarian Assistance USA, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your past and present generosity and support!

We wish you and your loved ones a holiday season full of safety, warmth and happiness—and a bright and joyous year full of hope in 2021.

Thank you,
Shenila Momin
Chairperson and Interim CEO

Highlights from 2020
Ghulomidinov Navruzshoh (pictured), another CERT volunteer in the Rushon District, used his own resources to clean and disinfect schools in his village. He and other volunteers also distributed informational awareness materials such as booklets and posters throughout the village.
City and community leaders with Focus Humanitarian Assistance USA proudly presented half a million face masks to the City of Houston just as COVID-19 cases were on the rise across Texas. Mayor Sylvester Turner accepted the reusable face masks and announced plans to distribute the donations to first responders as well as any residents living in at-risk communities.
Relying on its network of more than 35,000 trained volunteers across Pakistan, AKAH was able to quickly and efficiently gather and transport food supplies to rural and urban locations with shortages. These supplies provided families and patients in quarantine centers with access to food, reducing stress and ensuring access to essential goods.
