Summary

Cyclone Phailin struck the eastern coast of India with winds as high as 136 mph (220 km/h) and a storm surge of 11 feet (3.4 m). The storm system is half the size of India and has destroyed thousands of homes, displacing tens of thousands of people. This fund will provide emergency relief to victims.Funds will be disbursed to international and local nonprofit partners including International Medical Corps and Save the Children.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

News services report that Cyclone Phailin has displaced more than 800,000 people from their homes. Damages from the storm are extensive and evacuees desperately need basic supplies. Emergency workers are scrambling to provide much-needed assistance and aid to those affected by the storm. Damage assessments will inform the need for rebuilding and recovery services.

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.
