Trusted Transformative Committed

Supporting those affected by natural disasters, we focus on providing relief and resiliency measures to people and communities in need.

Current Project​

At AESARA when we work with our clients on communication projects, storytelling presentations are very effective to translate ideas and move people to action. Our challenge in 2021 was how to help lift from a webpage the narrative that has unfolded with the AESARA Foundation to further sow the seeds of generosity in the reader.  And so our journey began with “Love Somebody”, a song written for the AESARA Foundation.

Music is an even more powerful approach to storytelling. When we approached Diaz and Friends Productions, it was for a simple jingle or tune. To our immense delight, they felt compelled to write a song for us when they learned about the interconnectedness of AESARA and the AESARA Foundation.

We hope this song moves you to  ”Love Somebody”, to be filled with the generosity of giving.  The song is coming soon to a streaming platform near you!

"There comes a point in life where each of us has to decide what kind of person, family or organization we choose to be. I found at AESARA Foundation, a chance to push myself to give beyond what I thought was possible. I found a group of people committed to being a good neighbor to those who cross our path."

“Sissi, what a wonderful surprise to see this extraordinary project come to fruition. You and your team are nothing short of amazing to have overcome all the obstacles and recruited the team needed for success. I can't express how satisfied all of us at BurlPres and the hundreds of individual donors we represent are to have helped put this permanent asset in place for Loiza.”

"I was amazed to see the kindness multiply and our painting crew grew. First came the people on vacation, then some home owners, then people from other non-profits. The butterfly effect was real!"

"The AESARA Foundation service trip to Loiza was in a way a life changing moment in time for us. We went down to help but we in turn were given a gift. We were so warmly welcomed into the homes, hearts and community - we were given so much from those who had lost so much in the hurricanes."

"At the most critical time in the history of Restaurant Provence, the AESARA Foundation, led by Sissi Pham, showed the importance of community support. We were sure not to survive this pandemic, but with their generous donation, after over four months we are still able to operate and keep all our staff on the payroll. Thank you, from all of Provence staff!"

"We laid a house of ceramic tile for a family with a blind daughter whose house was destroyed by the hurricane. Since the hurricane, they were living in one bedroom with no kitchen and no bathroom. Even after putting in very hard and long days, it was still difficult to leave each day knowing we were so close to putting their lives somewhat back to normal."
