From all of us at FIRE to all of you, Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!

We currently have a matching contribution challenge until January 15, 2015. Every donation made between now and then will be tripled. Please read below for more information. Our 2013 Annual Report is also below as well as FIRE's radio Public Service Announcement.

This Holiday Season, every donation we receive up to $20,000 will be tripled!! Four very generous donors have offered to donate a combined $40,000 if we raise $20,000 by the end of 2014. This total of $60,000 in donations will cover FIRE's shortfall for its programs in 2015.

Please maximize your donated dollars, triple the amount, and keep FIRE moving forward and upward!! Make your donation by January 15, 2014, so that we may continue to make a difference.


You can donate securely on-line here. Checks may also be mailed to FIRE / PO Box 22187  / Flagstaff, AZ / 86002.


We do the hard stuff (like living in Mongolia's 9 months of winter)

you can do the easy stuff. So please, take ten minutes, write a

check, or make a few clicks of the mouse, and make your donation today!

2013 Annual Report

In 2013, by narrowing our geographic focus to a small section of one province in Mongolia, we were able to go more in-depth with our existing programs and develop new programs.


The result was the fine tuning of a comprehensive program structure that addresses viral hepatitis and liver cancer prevention from every level in a sustainable, repeatable method. We have executed and tested several new programs that we are now ready to spread across the country.


Please read our 2013 Annual Report for more information.


FIRE's Public Service Announcement

Thank you to Lee Mason and the John Bachelor Show for preparing two Public Service Announcements (PSA) for FIRE about our work in Mongolia. They very graciously donated their time and talent to record a 30 second and 60 second PSA. 

Please let us know if you have any ideas about where we can play these  wonderful PSAs.

Jennifer Dzik began working as an intern for FIRE in October 2014. Originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, she relocated to Flagstaff in 2007 to attend Northern Arizona University, where she obtained a master's degree in professional writing. By entering into the writing program at NAU, Jennifer had hoped to eventually volunteer her writing skills to non-profit organizations within the Flagstaff community, and is now assisting FIRE with writing and editing. Jennifer is pleased that she is able to gain practical experience while helping FIRE and the Mongolian community to develop effective written communication materials.
