The Red Cross only serves to collect money and pay its shareholders who consist of the same government legislators that make it impossible for others to effectively help. This is done by only allowing Red Cross access and stringing up red tape for the rest.
I encourage you to speak with the local church communities. In my experience these organizations are very much linked and have missions on the ground in country. They have found ways around the bureaucratic non sense and must be taken seriously. They have found ways to get it done.
The World is my country, all mankind is my brethren, to do good is my religion.
