how can you help?

Devastation worldwide is being met with enormous global emergency response to provide those affected with basic needs.   

Relief, restoration, and recovery of devastated areas will be a complex, expensive, and time-consuming process. 

The problem is that donor interest will wane and disaster fatigue will commence soon. 

We must meet the obligation within these ares and take the long view of recovery by creating a concerted and continual flow of donations to sustain the work in those areas. 

Please join Daedalus in both an immediate and sustained effort to assist in restoration and recovery in those devastated ares. Donate now! 

Rather than sending money for general purposes, we will concentrate upon identifiable projects—projects that you will be able to find on the map—and know that you are a part. There will be opportunities to volunteer. If interested, contact us.

our principles

Three components are of primary importance to the projects undertaken by Daedalus: they must have a humanitarian basis, be environmentally sound, and promote sustainable economic growth.

The daedalus foundation

The Daedalus Foundation was established in 1998 as a non-profit, charitable organization and was subsequently accorded tax-exempt--501 (c) (3) status--by the US Internal Revenue Service.

Our Mission

Our Mission The Daedalus Foundation was founded upon a unique model that focuses upon population-related matters.

As our global population grows, many situations and events are greatly exaggerated by the absolute numbers of people involved.  Among the most important issues, and those upon which Daedalus is currently focused, are housing poverty, water poverty, and sanitation. Solutions to those problems are best addressed in the framework of the creation of community and sustainable economic growth.

Among the challenges facing those attempting to alleviate housing and water poverty through technological means is to develop a way to change the situation for the greatest number, in the shortest period of time, and in a manner that can be sustained.  Ultimately, that framework must make housing and water affordable to the poor, and one element of that affordability is low-cost materials and systems.  Daedalus is able to provide those items.

Today, The Daedalus Foundation provides a source of information regarding housing and water issues facing the world and a link for your support to programs aimed at those people and countries in most need of our support.  For more than a century, international relief and development organizations have been able to respond to humanitarian needs because of private funds raised to support this vital work. Please help us continue this tradition by donating now.

What we do
The 2010 Haiti earthquake was a catastrophic magnitude 7.0 Mw earthquake, with an epicenter near the town of Léogâne, approximately 25 km (16 miles) west of Port-au-Prince, Haiti's capital. The earthquake occurred at 16:53 local time (21:53 UTC) on Tuesday, 12 January 2010. By 24 January, at least 52 aftershocks measuring 4.5 or greater had been recorded. An estimated three million people were affected by the quake; the Haitian Government reported that an estimated 230,000 people had died, 300,000 had been injured and 1,000,000 made homeless. They also estimated that 250,000 residences and 30,000 commercial buildings had collapsed or were severely damaged. 



Population Matters

In July, 2010, heavy monsoon rains caused Pakistan's worst flooding in history devastating the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Sindh, lower Punjab, and Balochistan areas. It is estimated that two thousand people along with close to a million homes have perished so far. The United Nations estimates over 20 million people are suffering and homeless with over 160,000 square kilometers (62,000 sq mi) affected as a result of the flooding. Around a fifth of Pakistan's total land area was underwater due to the flooding.
