Humanitarian Relief Lawyer in Anaheim, CA
Find the Humanitarian Relief Program That Is Right for You
According to the U.S. Department of State, the United States is the largest single provider of humanitarian assistance worldwide. The primary goal of U.S. humanitarian assistance is to save lives and alleviate suffering, and the country accomplishes this goal by offering several humanitarian programs and protection to assist individuals and families in need.
The United States not only provides international disaster assistance but also offers asylum and refugee status to people fleeing disasters and oppression and seeking emergency medical treatment.
If you need to escape your home country, you cannot go home because you fear persecution, you need emergency medical care, or you are facing other urgent circumstances, Law Offices of Fady Eskandar may be able to help.
Our Anaheim humanitarian relief attorney understands what you are going through because he has been through the immigration process himself. You can trust him to offer honest representation and handle your case with compassion.
What Kinds of Humanitarian Relief Programs Does the United States Offer?

Can You Come to the United States for Medical Care?
Yes. To seek medical treatment in the United States, you will need to apply for a B-2 tourist visa at your local U.S. embassy or consulate. You will also need to answer questions about:
- Your medical situation
- Treatment options available in your home country
- The treatment you are seeking in the United States
- Your doctors, hospitals, tests, procedures, medications, medical conditions, and potential treatments in the future
- How much your treatment costs
- Who will pay for the treatment
- Your plans to stay in the United States for a temporary and specified period
- Your binding ties and intentions to return home
- And more
Additionally, you may be asked to provide proof of your medical condition and your ability to pay for treatment – even if your doctor waives certain fees for humanitarian reasons.
If you are facing an urgent medical condition, you cannot risk having your visa application denied, so you should contact a humanitarian relief attorney for help. Consider seeking a lawyer in the city you wish to retain treatment.
