Our roots stem from trips to Brazil to distribute emergency medical supplies and train law enforcement officers, but our organization was forged out of the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine. We designed our organization to provide efficient solutions to complex problems in dangerous places.
The mission of Rescue 82 comes from Psalm 82:4- Rescue the weak and the needy. Deliver them from the hand of the wicked. Jesus Christ is the Ultimate Rescuer and we seek to follow His example by assisting those in need wherever they are located.
