About USA for IOM

USA for IOM (formerly USAIM) is the nonprofit partner of IOM, the UN Migration Agency, which provides life-saving humanitarian assistance for people displaced by natural disasters and conflicts, as well as assistance to survivors and victims of human trafficking around the globe. Americans have always expressed great charity toward people around the world facing desperate or vulnerable times. USA for IOM provides opportunities for Americans to raise awareness, provide funds and give hope to the millions of people who no longer have the security and peace of a permanent home.
