Team Aid – The only organization in the world supporting people in crisis when they are away from home
Our aim is to be the main point of contact for family and friends who are experiencing trauma, grief, or loss of a loved one in a foreign country, or far away from home. We are a socially inclined, 501(c)(3), non-profit organization. See our Mission Statement
Team Aid offer support to people facing the worst moments of their life – accidents, disasters, and deaths. We help you deal with these life-altering situations by working with the community, embassies, airlines, funeral homes and importantly, local Coordinators. If you need urgent help, get help now.
Help When You Need It
The number of travelers and migrants who require help during times of unexpected crisis increases every year as even more people leave home, familiar communities and families behind. TEAM Aid’s volunteer Coordinators function as a local extended family when others are too far away to help.
Whatever the reasons for being away, whether it to pursue a better living, a safer world, work experience, or education, these people are often alone, and should tragedy strike, their families have no way of knowing how to help them in a foreign place. Lack of emotional support and practical help, on both sides, only serves to worsen an already bad situation, and often contributes to further mental stress and trauma.
TEAM Aid’s large network of Coordinators are based locally in a number of countries covering many towns and cities. We are always looking for volunteers around the globe, please consider offering your support, you can find out more about volunteering here.
As a nonprofit, we rely heavily on our amazing volunteers and of course donations from the public and business partners. Please consider giving something to help fund our work.
TEAM Aid’s volunteer Coordinators are there to help the victimized and affected when they have no one else. A Team Aid volunteer is always prepared to help in most emergency situations.
Whilst it would be impossible for the family member and individuals to meet each other, Team Aid helps in comforting the emotional burden by extending a helping hand to such families. We can help you emotionally and offer a supportive shoulder when you need to overcome such challenges. We work with a range of partners.
Thank you for your faith in TEAM Aid and our dedicated volunteers. We try our best in helping you cope up with your crisis in a foreign land.

Become a Volunteer Coordinator
TEAM Aid is there when no one else can be
Thanks to our global, and growing network, a local TEAM Aid Coordinator is just a phone call away.
At TEAM Aid we understand that when facing dire circumstances, especially if abroad and away from their home, the need for support can be crucial. We are proud to be able to provide the support necessary and become the extended family and friends you need when you are unable to connect to loved ones.
That support is equally as important back home for your families; we recognize this and can provide support for them as well. Our primary objective is to bridge that distance.
Do you think you have what it takes to be a TEAM Aid Coordinator?
