To help the survivors, Sewa International formed a task force to deal with the disaster in all three stages of disaster relief: relief, rehabilitation, and rebuilding. As a response to relief, food, shelter, clothing, gasoline, and other essentials were provided and joined hands with local volunteers to provide holiday lunch on bringing the holiday cheer in the lives of the people who had lost everything in the deadly fire.
Now as part of rehabilitation support, Sewa is joining hands with Gridley Chamber of Commerce contiues to support re-establishing local community organizations and school districts. Come open your wallets and donate generously to help those in need.

“ Sewa International has taken up a nationwide project to help these Bhutanese families.more...
Since 2008, refugees from Bhutan were provided asylum by the US Government and settled in various parts of the US. Beyond learning to make a living in the US, Bhutanese now numbering nearly 80,000 have to adjust to the cold weather, uprooting of traditional familial and societal structures, cultural isolation, etiquettes, language, children’s education, family issues (marriage, birth, death, conflict resolution, etc.), women’s health, and an insurmountable aspect for the poor in the US - transportation. Sewa International has been working to settle the refugees down from California to New York, from Chicago to Houston and has reached 48,000 refugees through its service.
Though many of the refugees are educated and can speak English, many of them have remained unemployed. And because agency support and government aid are not available to them for an extended period of time, the assistance of Sewa International is quickly becoming a lifeline for many of these families. Current programs of Sewa to empower the Bhutanese immigrants include education and tuition services, leadership programs for the youth, women empowerment, job assistance and emergency distress assistance.
