Disaster Relief

2023: Turkiye

From February to March 2023, HatchHope helped the victims of the Turkiye earthquake by collecting and donating 37 lbs. worth of clothing and food. In addition, we also donated $132.64 of medical supplies, including medication, first aid kits, and toiletries to the Turkish Embassy. We raised $1366.00 to purchase tents and blankets for the victims. Using those funds, we donated 8 4-person tents, 3 6-person tents, and 200 blankets, providing 50 individuals shelter.

2007: ORCA

In November 2007, when Bangladesh was ravaged by Sidr Cyclone that washed ashore thousands of carcasses of livestock and human beings alike, we volunteered to help bring some form of relief to those who were still alive. Members of Manassas Mosque helped collect clothes. We collected $500 that was used to buy medicine from local pharmacies. We also helped sell $100 worth of tickets to a theatrical event sponsored by the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology Alumni. The entire proceeds went directly to the affected individuals. The show, which raised $20,000, was followed by a march sponsored by ORCA (Old Rajshahi Cadet Association). The amount was then matched by Verizon.

2005: Adam Center

In 2005, we collected tents and clothing for the Great Pakistan Earthquake which impacted the Northwest Frontier province. We collected clothing from neighborhoods as well as from the members of Manassas Mosque. We also bought 30 tents, each housing 10-12 individuals. Once the goods arrived by air in Karachi, Pakistan, they were transported by train to Lahore, then by donkeys to Peshawar and the far north.

2004: Asia Relief

In December 2004, when the South-East Asia was devastated by the tsunami that killed hundreds of thousands of people in Asia and Africa, we  raised donations, medication and clothing for the affected families of Sri-Lanka. The employees at Inova Urgent Care Center unofficially gave their donations and emergency medical supplies, which included syringes, gauzes, alcohol preps and Tylenol. We also gathered a truck full of clothes from members of Manassas Mosque to be sent with the shipment.

1996: Northern Virginia AIDS Ministry

In 1996 our organization helped NOVAM transport its associates to and fro their respective medical appointments.

1994: Action in Community Through Service

In the summer of 1994, our organization volunteered its time to ACTS, which caters to victims of domestic violence and homelessness. We assisted in the administrative tasks and distributed food to the homeless.
