The Kirwin International Relief Foundation is a humanitarian organization dedicated to helping others help themselves in a respectful, efficient, and environmentally sustainable manner through our two missions of disaster relief and education. Our on-the-ground disaster relief is done by experienced volunteers who pay their own airfare and work with altruistic people and service organizations native to the area.
We want to say a sincere "Thank you!" to everyone who donated to the Thomas fire 2017 disaster in Southern California. We were able to help out over 41 families in a significant way, which came out to over 100 people, young and old, before Christmas.

Once again, donations made to us will go into our general relief fund for the next natural disaster or education project.

Have a wonderful year of renewal, love, and prosperity in 2018.
