Long-term impact for Vanuatu + Invitation

ACTIV Association
ACTIV Association

It has been more than one year since Cyclone Pam struck Vanuatu, and the GlobalGiving community have provided much-needed recovery and rebuilding for people devastated by the storm. Your support has led to lasting positive impact for affected people. Through your donations:

  • ACTIV rebuilt the roof of two classrooms of the St-Joseph School after they were blown away in the cyclone in Vanuatu;
  • Global Vision International Charitable Trust partnered with Wan Smolbag Theatre (WST) to provide shelter and food to over 250 community members who lost their homes;
  • IsraAID distributed water, farm and garden kits for all villages in Tangoa Island, and provided psychosocial first aid to survivors

This fund will be closing but if you would like to continue to support other disaster relief and recovery efforts, you can find information about GlobalGiving’s response here: https://www.globalgiving.org/disasters/.

Because you have been committed to supporting relief efforts not only at the onset of the storm, but months after to insure long-term impact for a stronger and more resilient Vanuatu, we would like to invite you to a special event: From The Front Lines: GlobalGiving Disaster Response Panel.

Your support has made it possible for GlobalGiving’s nonprofit partners to provide immediate and long-term relief for communities impacted by past disasters, like Typhoon Haiyan, and recent disasters, like the earthquakes in Japan and Ecuador, the Nepal earthquakes, the Ebola outbreak, and the Syrian refugee crisis. At this event you’ll have the opportunity to hear from the organizations you have supported and disaster responders’ first-hand experiences.

Please RSVP by May 16th. Click here to learn more and RSVP.

From The Front Lines: GlobalGiving Disaster Response Panel
Date: Wednesday, May 18, 2016
Time: 06:00 pm EDT (Find this time in your city).
Location: You can join in person at GlobalGiving’s DC office, or watch online.

Thank you for your previous and ongoing support. We look forward to seeing you on May 18th!

Long-term impact for the Philippines + Invitation

Asia America Initiative
Asia America Initiative

It has been 3.5 years since Typhoon Haiyan (known locally as Yolanda) hit the Philippines, and your donations have made a huge difference in life of people throughout the country. Your support has sent typhoon-affected students to college, provided food and water to survivors in remote areas, and rebuilt much-needed sanitation systems wiped away by the storm. To support the students being sent to college, Water, Agroforestry, Nutrition and Development Foundation (WAND) is also providing small livelihood opportunities so the families can help pay for school expenses.

In November 2015, donors like you came together to make a long-term impact for communities in the Philippines affected by Typhoon Haiyan. From November 2015 until March 2016, GlobalGiving matched donations at 100% to Typhoon Haiyan recovery projects, doubling donors’ impact. This resulted in more than 200 people raising close to $100,000 for long-term recovery!

Because you have been committed to supporting relief and recovery work not only at the onset of the storm, but years after to insure long-term impact for a stronger and more resilient Philippines, we would like to invite you to a special event: From The Front Lines: GlobalGiving Disaster Response Panel.

Your support has made it possible for GlobalGiving’s nonprofit partners to provide immediate and long-term relief for communities impacted by past disasters, like Typhoon Haiyan, and recent disasters, like the earthquakes in Japan and Ecuador, the Nepal earthquakes, the Ebola outbreak, and the Syrian refugee crisis. At this event you’ll have the opportunity to hear from the organizations you have supported and disaster responders’ first-hand experiences.

How your donation is supporting Ecuador's recovery

All Hands Volunteers coordinating relief work

On Saturday evening, April 16 our team learned of the devastating 7.8-magnitude earthquake that rocked Ecuador, causing 654 deaths and more than 27,000 injuries. Due to widespread damage to housing and infrastructure, more than 26,000 people have been relocated to temporary shelters.

In the hours that followed, we began reaching out to our nonprofit partners both in Ecuador and internationally, and launched this relief fund to support their work. To date eight GlobalGiving partners have begun relief efforts to assist survivors.

Your donation is already being put to use, supporting four organizations uniquely positioned to assist in the immediate aftermath of the earthquake:

  • Teams from All Hands Volunteers are removing and disposing of rubble, taking down unsafe buildings, and distributing health and shelter kits. They also plan to build temporary shelters and safe spaces for children. 
  • MAP International has airlifted enough emergency health kits and medicine into Ecuador to treat more than 80,000 survivors, as well as 250 water filters.
  • In Ecuador’s hardest-hit communities, many families do not have the fuel necessary to cook or boil water, which increases their risk of contracting waterborne diseases. Fuel Relief Fund is delivering free fuel to families to cover their household cooking, water purification, and lighting needs for one month. 
  • IsraAID has deployed its Emergency Relief Team to assist with relief efforts and the long-term response strategy. Their goals include delivering food and relief supplies, emergency medical assistance, and psychosocial support to the survivors of the quake, including the creation of child-friendly spaces.

In the coming weeks, we’ll share stories of how your donation is also funding Ecuador’s long-term recovery from the earthquake, led by locally driven nonprofits who are best-positioned to respond to the needs of their communities.

Thank you again for your generosity and joining a community of GlobalGivers committed to helping survivors recover.

Warmly,
Britt Lake + the GlobalGiving Team

P.S. Because you’ve generously supported disaster relief work on GlobalGiving, I’d like to invite you to a special event we’re holding on Wednesday, May 18th at 6pm EDT. “From the Front Lines: GlobalGiving Disaster Response Panel” will feature staff from our nonprofit partners who’ve responded to a range of disasters, including earthquakes in Japan, Ecuador, and Nepal, the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, and the Syrian refugee crisis. They’ll be sharing stories of their work and answering questions from attendees. You’re welcome to attend the panel either online or in-person at our Washington, D.C. office.
