Mexican Red Cross Grant
Mexico was hit with one of its worst national disasters in November 2007 when the state of Tabasco was hit by a hurricane, causing massive flooding and the destruction of tens of thousands of homes, schools, as well as the state's crops. TCA donated two fully equipped ambulances, worth $ 200,000, to the Mexican Red Cross to be used in the southeastern Mexican state of Tabasco.

Chaldean Federation Grant
In an effort to alleviate the suffering of thousands of Iraq's war torn and displaced Chaldean refugees in Turkey, in 2009 TCA pledged a $ 100,000 humanitarian grant to the Chaldean Federation of America (CFA). Under this humanitarian program, administered jointly with the Istanbul-based Turkish Chaldean-Assyrian-Syriac Humanitarian Organization (KASDER), humanitarian aid, particularly food and medicine, is provided to Christian refugees from Iraq who live in Turkey.

Bosnia Aid Grant
In September 2014, TCA provided a major humanitarian grant of $100,000 to the Marshall Legacy Institute (MLI) to aid flood relief and demining programs in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH). The TCA grant aimed to help BiH recover from devastating floods that not only caused substantial damage throughout much of the country, but also caused serious setbacks in demining efforts by displacing countless land mines and washing away mine warning signs. TCA's donation was matched by the U.S. State Department.
