About Us

The International American Relief Society

We have been dedicated to reducing suffering and fighting hunger and poverty.

IARS was founded by Pastor Dennis Hennman and his friend Jean Aimé Shabanza Mbiya Bondo in August 2016, in response to the issues of many underprivileged people who are struggling with their daily life.

IARS works in partnership with local organizations where our support are needed. Domestic partnerships are a crucial element in the fight against hunger and local organizations play a significant role in addressing the needs of the most vulnerable populations, of people suffering from malnutrition and affected by food insecurity.

The IARS acts to fight and end the displacement force by participating in the development of the human being in” upstream and downstream” that is mean, work to support the victim population of developing countries to develop their societies and promote human dignity
