Lifeline is a private non-profit foundation that was launched by Daniel Wolf in 2003 in memory and honor of his father, Dr. George Wolf, a renowned neuroscientist and pioneer in the study of salt appetite.
From the outset, Lifeline's goal was to promote self-sustaining interventions that would have an outsized impact in relieving the suffering of refugees and other vulnerable persons in the poorest regions of the world. During its first two years, Lifeline focused most of its attention on refugee advocacy issues, as it explored various possibilities for humanitarian programs that would fit within its vision.
By 2006, Lifeline had settled on two such programs – one that would promote the use of a super-efficient clay stove and the other that would bring clean water to people who were drinking from stagnant pools. Since that time, Lifeline’s sustainable fuel and clean water programs have profoundly improved the lives of more than 250,000 beneficiaries who have been uprooted by violence in Northern Uganda, Darfur, Somalia, Burundi and the Congo.
