Those temporarily at risk, such as refugees, displaced persons, and disaster victims, need immediate assistance. LEAD helped victims of the Nargis cyclone in Myanmar, displaced Syrians during the Syrian civil war, and currently helping Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh. In low-income countries where social services are often insufficient, widows and orphans are more at personal and financial risk than those belonging to families. LEAD has helped orphanages in Bangladesh, Guatemala, India, Myanmar (Burma), Thailand, and Uganda. Currently, LEAD is assisting with social enterprises operated by a cooperative of widows in Uganda.
