Cyclone Fani Relief: What's Happening and How to Help
Cyclone Fani brought strong winds and torrential rains and caused severe damage in India. Several of GlobalGiving’s local nonprofit partners in India are responding to survivors’ immediate needs and have asked us to help fund their relief and recovery efforts.
The projects below will provide emergency funding to locally driven relief efforts, providing food, medicine, and other essential supplies to help people impacted by the storm. 100% of designated donations to these projects will go to support relief, recovery and resilience efforts after Cyclone Fani.
We believe that organizations that are deeply rooted in local communities are often in the best position to provide long-term support for disaster victims. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger disaster-response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future disasters. GlobalGiving will post reports about how funds have been used and will email these reports to donors and subscribers.
