We served 10,000 free hot meals in a month to the lowest income communities around Houston Texas following the historic floods caused by Hurricane Harvey. This video shows what we did, how we did it and introduces the idea of radical transparency by showing photos of every receipt and every donation:
THE BATON ROUGE FLOOD:
In 2016 Altruist Relief fed people in cooperation with FFRE and Organic Valley after the flood in Baton Rouge, LA.
Here is our video about that project:
In the fall of 2016 Altruist Relief took a group of Natives from New Orleans, LA to Standing Rock near Cannon Ball, ND and set-up a large scale kitchen in one of our Rapid Response Tents (similar to a Siberian tepee,) and fed water protectors.
Living At Standing Rock:
In December of 2016 Lucid and Tea went back to Standing Rock and volunteered for three weeks and assisted the water protectors in their cause. (Here is our video about living at Standing Rock.)
Syrian Refugee Camps in Levos, Greece:
Lucid and Tea volunteered at a Syrian refugee camp on the island of Lesvos, Greece to assess the viability of setting up a duplicate of the Altruist Relief project as a refugee camp in Europe. They also worked at LATRA, an architectural & engineering design organization within the camp, and at No Borders Kitchen, a refugee camp run by anarchists in a series of abandoned warehouses.
Nicaraguan Coffee Farms:
Lucid worked with NAMLO to help coffee farmers grow vegetables inside of mesh tents that acted as a physical barrier to insects so that the farmers wouldn’t need to use pesticides.
