APPA also sends volunteers and aid to places that suffer from disasters and catastrophes such as tsunamis or earthquakes, areas afflicted by war, and other various conflicts. 

Locally, nationally and internationally, Action for Peace through Prayer and Aid is a vocal advocate for the hungry and displaced. We travel to every corner of the globe to help children and families in need.

Hunger isn't seasonal, which is why our year-round food drive gets so much attention. Devote an afternoon to stocking our pantry and see first-hand the families we help daily.

Preventing violent extremism, promoting human rights go hand-in-hand, Ban tells Washington summit

 

19 February 2015 – In Washington D.C. for a summit hosted by the United States on countering violent extremism, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon today warned leaders against “discarding our moral compass” and giving into fear, as he called for “cool heads and common sense” to deal with what may very well be “the greatest test our human family faces in the 21st century.”

  • Since the inception of the Flower Power Project (FlPP) in 1999 by APPA, the poor areas in Washington D.C. significantly transformed for the good. To this day, approximately three thousand high and middle school students actively participated in this project by cleaning the streets and building street gardens. 
  • Over 2,900 students have participated in the Fasting Power Project since its beginning in 2000. In this project, students fast a meal per week and instead ask their parents to donate five dollars, money that could be spent on the meals. Over a month, approximately 20-25 dollars are accumulated per student volunteer.
  • In 2003, APPA launched the Poster Power Project (PPP), a project perfect for targeting the United Nations Millennium Development Goals and spreading awareness among young adults and adults. Since its beginning, more than 2,500 students have created posters on issues such as extreme poverty, education, and so on.
