Helping Today. Helping Tommorow

INTERSOM after its formation in November 2004 as a non-governmental, non-profit making and non-political had the intention of facilitating relief and development services in restructuring the defunct and collapse aspects of livelihoods amongst the marginalized and vulnerable groups in SC regions whom their breadbasket have been affected. The organization founders have the aim of mitigating the effects of both man-made and natural catastrophe such as war, drought, famine, poor livelihoods and end all humanitarian related circumstances, crisis and sufferings while also accelerate positive change and development with the local culture, customary and context.
