The situation in Libya is becoming increasingly unstable as the conflict rages on. Forgotten in the headlines and political rhetoric are the thousands of people who are innocent victims of the war. The Humanitarian International Services Group is committed to serving the needs of these people who are caught in a terrifying crossfire.

HISG has an opportunity to purchase 30 metric tons (66,000 lbs) of flour in Egypt and transport the flour over the border into Libya to supply local bakeries. By empowering the local bakers instead of simply handing out loaves of bread, HISG is allowing the local businesses to lead the way in a very turbulent time. Also, producing the bread locally bread will rebuild the citizens’ confidence in their community, in addition to alleviating a looming food shortage.

This is short term solution that is sustainable for the long-term recovery of the nation.

Estimated cost: $30k (US)

HISG is about connecting resources to needs.

Music for Libya “When the Morning Comes” is a compilation digital only album made up of artists from all over the world donating a track to make a difference.

In a short 6 days, we will have gone from concept to release.

Release date: 4/5/2011

All proceeds from the downloads of this album will go directly to HISG and their work in Libya.

HISG does this work on less than 10% admin costs.
