Our Story: Since 2003

Innovative Humanitarian Solutions was founded July 1, 2003 as a result of humanitarian opportunities in Iraq. A book bag factory was established to provide free book bags for school children and jobs for the people of Iraq. A short time later a container of medical equipment was shipped.

From this small beginning Innovative Humanitarian Solutions has grown to include projects in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Morocco, Nepal, Pakistan, Sudan, Somaliland and Greece…and the expansion continues wherever the need is identified and the provision mobilized.
