Providing Emergency Humanitarian Assistance
Throughout the world, there is constant need for emergency relief assistance due to changing situations. There are crises that are caused by natural disasters such as drought, massive erosion, flooding, earthquakes, disease epidemics, and civil or political unrest. Irrespective of the cause, the emergency situations are occasioned by human sufferings and displacements in some cases of many people including children and frail elderly people. These emergency situations often present challenging situations for the home governments and in the cases where there are refugees, countries accepting refugees into their population also face the burden of caring for the refugees.

Clear Mandate works to provide relief in emergency situations to those in need in the form of medical supplies, clean drinking water, food, and temporary shelter. In addition to providing temporary relief, Clear Mandate strives to provide long-term development and sustainability programs to enable the victims improve their overall quality of life. Clear Mandate through its programs provides victims with the necessary information, basic education, literacy, and knowledge and skills needed to rebuild their lives and their communities and work towards preventing future upheavals, where possible.
Meeting Medical Needs
Poverty and poor health often go hand in hand. Millions of people in the developing world die from preventable and treatable diseases. According to UNAIDS, UNICEF, World Health Organization records,
  • Intestinal parasites infect about a third of the children in the world.
  • Parasites devour essential nutrients in human body and cause anemia, malnutrition, skin diseases and growth impediment.
  • More than half a million women die every year of complications during pregnancy or childbirth. In most cases, these deaths can be prevented with proper medical care.
Good health is of vital importance to every person. When people are sick and are unable to receive medical care, they are not in a position to find work or have the ability to work; as a result, they become poor, or poorer. The family members taking care of the sick may not be able to work as well and in some cases may contract the disease.  Poor people are prone to getting sick. To break such cycle will require access to healthcare. Access to and affordability of healthcare can be a challenge in developing countries.  Getting trained healthcare professionals in medically underserved communities is extremely difficult and as such many governments are unable to meet the needs.

Clear Mandate is dedicated to providing temporary medical care through short-term visits or medical missions by medical professionals, strengthening existing health systems in poor rural communities, providing resources that enable trained health workers already in the country to continue to meet the needs. Before the visiting medical care team leaves the community, they train local staff who will continue to dispense medications to the chronically sick in that community. The result is that the healthcare workers help the sick or injured to heal and be able to realize their potential.

Supporting clinics in poor communities in the U.S and other countries help develop a format for responding to disasters, which often affect poor people more. 

Clear Mandate is dedicated to saving lives and relieving suffering through health care training and relief and development programs. The organization aims to improve the quality of life of individuals and communities through health interventions and related activities that build local capacity in areas of crises and in underserved communities worldwide. By offering training and health care to affected areas and local populations, medical assistance to people at the highest risk, and operating with the flexibility to respond rapidly to emergency situations, International Medical Corps rehabilitates devastated health care systems and helps bring them back to self-reliance.
Providing Food
According to the International Food Policy Research Institute, about 1 billion people in the world are very poor, living on less than a dollar a day; and about 162 million live below that on less than half a dollar a day. About 800 million people go hungry, in need of sufficient access to food and many more people are deficient of vitamins and minerals, which cause serious health problems.

Clear Mandate provides food to meet immediate problems of food shortage due to natural disasters, famine, or other causes. After disasters, Clear Mandate provides clean drinking water and food. Clear Mandate provides food to schools, in addition to food to adults in the community, in times of need. School food program enables students to receive a balanced meal each day.  While providing food to meet immediate needs, Clear Mandate works with communities to develop sustainable means of providing food to meet their long-term needs, through improved agricultural practices.

Providing Clean Water
Shortage of clean water supply remains one of the problems facing many rural communities and the cause of some diseases. People in developing countries constantly face the problem of lack of clean water supply. As a result they use water that is contaminated by dirt, infested by parasites, or reuse untreated sewage water. In some cases, communities use saltwater, this leaves people sick or dehydrated. Clear Mandate approach favors the integration of water supply with sanitation and hygiene to meet immediate needs and prevent outbreak of diseases. A well, clean spring or stream with clean water in combination with basic hygiene education goes a long way to reduce different water-borne diseases. When the source of clean water is close to the community, it minimizes time spent in searching for water, dangers involved in trekking long distances to fetch water, and reduces incidents of water-borne diseases.

The goal of Clear Mandate is to provide communities with reliable supply of clean water and sanitation facilities by providing wells, springs, boreholes, or rainwater collection points, and building toilet facilities. The training and basic education component helps communities to understand the link between drinking unsafe water and disease and the measures that need to be taken to stay healthy.

Education and Literacy
There is a link between extreme poverty and illiteracy. Illiteracy affects various areas of people's lives and at Clear Mandate, we recognize that education has the potential to transform lives and it forms the foundation for sustainable support or aid program. In a bid to help communities in this area, Clear Mandate helps through constructing school and library buildings, providing books-new and used, providing literacy programs, and funding training programs. A greater part of the efforts on education and literacy is in developing countries where the need for literacy is greatest in developing countries.

Along with basic literacy, Clear Mandate assists in helping individuals and communities achieve information technology literacy. This is essential for individuals to communicate, work, and live in the 21st century.
