Rescue People Without Hope

Send highly specialized first responder teams into war zones and hard-to-reach areas around the globe.


How Chazak Rescue Is Changing Lives

Fighting was intense. Adults and children alike were being used as human shields to protect Isis personnel. Stationed only a few miles away, we were within eyesight of daily bombings.

Slowly the Iraqi army began pushing through Mosul, freeing people from Isis control. We began building relationships with local residents and soldiers. We asked what we could do to help.

The answer was clear. People were being shot. The local doctor in charge wanted our help.

There was just one problem. Our team didn’t have medical training.

Today, we’re calling this generation to rise to the challenge. We are equipping young people with the necessary training and experience to take the Gospel straight into the front lines.

What Makes Chazak Rescue Unique

We equip and send teams of professional first responders into war zones and natural disasters around the world. Whether it's wars, earthquakes, or flooding, our teams are among the first to respond when disaster hits. Our teams care deeply, they touch people at their lowest and they bring hope to brokenness.

Financial overview

We plan for our training program to be self-funded by 2030 through tuition, grants, scholarships, and the Chazak Foundation.

We do not require our staff to raise their own support. Rather, we provide each of our staff with a fair wage sufficient to cover standard housing and living expenses.

Following is our projected budget for 2022-2023.

2022 - 2023 Budget

  • Finance Department


  • Research and Development


  • Advance Team


*This covers August 1, 2022 to August 1, 2023.

Long-Term Financial Strategies

Within the next seven to ten years, we are working to fully self-fund the education part of Chazak Rescue. We are doing this by:

  1. Charging cadets a yearly tuition.

  2. Applying for available grants.

  3. Starting a foundation from which we will use only interest generated from the principal.

  4. Creating and/or partnering with businesses who generate profits specifically for Chazak.

Deployments will continue being funded through both donations given as well as excess generated from the above mentioned strategies.

Please note: throughout Chazak Rescue, we are choosing to pay our staff rather than having them find their own support.
