Summary

Storm, rain and flood disaster strikes hard. It strikes particularly hard for those living in poverty. Personal and family recovery is difficult when governments are not in a position to provide any support. Families end up being devastated and scare resources are further depleted. This project will provide humanitarian support to help families and communities get back on track. Funds will go towards food, emergency help, cleanup efforts, fixing roofs, restoring damaged property etc.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Disaster hits hard. It has the potential of setting lives and communities back by many years.. The poor are severely affected as they do not have any reserves to help them recover and put their lives back on track. Any funds that they have are quickly depleted. Their lives are seriously disadvantaged after disasters such as flood, wind and hurricane. The desperately need emergency assistance to restore their lives.

How will this project solve this problem?

This project will help bring restoration to disaster-affected families by providing much-needed resources to help them get their lives back on track. In the short-term, they will receive help with food, fixing their houses / cleaning up debris, falling trees etc. In the long term families and communities with receive help with regaining sufficiency and preparedness.
