RISE is an all volunteer organization!
The work we do is fueled by ‘average people’ who are passionate about making a difference in the world. We got our start as a small group of people who saw a need, traded ideas, and gave some a try. Some worked, some didn’t. But through the process of trying, we realized our own potential to create change. It’s an empowering experience and we invite you to experience this too! Check out the volunteer opportunities below.

Many of the hospitals treating acid attack survivors are in parts of the world with very limited access to medical supplies. Acid attack victims often do not have basic supplies like gauze or antibiotics and their wounds become infected, which compromises their healing. Supplies most needed at this time:
- Bulky absorbent dressings
- Silver-based wound dressings
- Silicon-based scar dressings
- Pressure garments
- Elastic/crepe bandages
- Pain control medications
- Nutritional supplements, oral or IV
- Vitamin E cream
- Raw shea butter
- Raw coconut butter
Survivor artisans love receiving supplies from around the world! Have items to donate? Please contact us!
