Summary

Severe flooding has killed at least 13 people, displaced thousands, and has caused widespread damage in Senegal. This fund will provided emergency relief to the victims of the floods through GlobalGiving partners like Maison de la Gare and Oxfam.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Heavy rains and severe flooding have caused severe damage in Senegal. GlobalGiving partners are carrying out activities including providing clean water (water testing and treatment), emergency sanitation, and hygiene promotion.

How will this project solve this problem?

GlobalGiving is partnering with several organizations on the ground to provide emergency aid and long term relief to victims. We will post updates on how these funds have been used so that you can see the impact that your donation has had.

Potential Long Term Impact

Major disasters always require a huge amount of support to provide relief and long term recovery efforts. In this case, these initial funds will help survivors and victims get necessary services. Over time this fund will transition to support longer term recovery efforts.
