Dear Friends & Supporters of Total Courage:

Happy 2024!

Thank you for allowing me to take a few moments of your time on New Year’s Day.

2024 promises to be a year of Hope and Renewal.

Hope is the confident expectation that something good is going to happen in your life or in the lives of others.

Renewal is about resuming our work in the face of adversity with positivity, enthusiasm and character, above all.

We are strengthened by Faith, encouraged by Hope and motivated by Love.

Our work serving the displaced and indigent citizens of Ukraine,Maui and Israel under austere and challenging conditions has been both humbling and rewarding.

We are grateful that we are able to improve our service to others and be good stewards of your resources by leveraging emerging supply chain solutions and developing secure networks of selfless servants.

I would be remiss if I did not recognize our International Relief Coordinator, George Jinjalia. We are so blessed to have George, his wife, Lile and their fine boys as part of our family and team. They have a ‘no mission too difficult, no sacrifice too great’ attitude and they inspire us daily.

As always, we appreciate your feedback and your ownership in our organization. The only dumb question is the one that you fail to ask as we strive to be the best at what we do.

Again, thank you.

Serving with Character!

Total Courage volunteers brave indiscriminate rocket fire to help displaced Israeli citizens.

Israel remains under attack from multiple fronts. Please help us provide immediate disaster relief to displaced families that have lost their homes due to rocket attacks and fire. We are specifically delivering food, bedding, medicines, clothing and sundry items to victims and host families.

We are so grateful to all of our donors and supporters. What we have accomplished in Ukraine and the Republic Georgia has been nothing short of a miracle thanks to you, our friends and donors.

We ask for your continued prayers and support as we execute Operation Hearth (heating and cooking wood-stoves) in support of displaced families in the Kherson region.

This past week one of our Total Courage teammates, Jay Ayala, was contacted by Pele Chong who is a citizen of Maui, to see if we could serve the victims of the Lahaina fire.  Out of the goodness of her heart Pele has opened her home to nine homeless victims of the Lahaina fire. Yes, the government is providing some support but there is no way it can replace all that was lost.

As all of you know we drive out the cost of the supply chain by purchasing locally as best we can and then placing the right items at the right time into the hands of those who need it the most.

Please help us help these families! Mahalo!

ps. – If you would like to know more about these families please reach out to me personally. Their stories of survival are both daunting and heroic. Below are pictures of the families that Pele is housing.
