FIRE - Flagstaff International Relief Effort is a non-profit and non-government organization (NGO) operating since 1999. FIRE is a registered 501c.3 organization in the United States, headquartered in Flagstaff, Arizona, with a registered NGO branch of office in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, and small operation in Langtang, Nepal. After 16 years of work, FIRE continues to evolve, meeting the challenges of a rapidly changing world. Through sustainable programming, FIRE strives to empower communities and individuals.
FIRE’s Mongolian programs currently focus primarily on viral hepatitis and liver cancer prevention through life-changing programs that are strategically and responsibly implemented in partnership with the Mongolian Ministry of Health (MoH), the World Health Organization (WHO), the Canadian Society for International Health (CSIH), the Asian Liver Center at Stanford University and Rotary International.
In 2015 FIRE started a project to help the village of Langtang, Nepal rebuild after the April 25 earthquake. This has grown into a small office with local representatives in Kathmandu and Langtang.
In 2016, FIRE started a media group - the Ed Fund, in memory of our longtime collaborator and supporter, Ed George.
