Ford and GlobalGiving Disaster and Crisis Relief

Severe rain has caused devastating flash flooding in Germany and Belgium leading to over a hundred deaths and thousands of people being unaccounted for. Ford Motor Company Fund, working with their grantmaking partner, GlobalGiving, are supporting the German Red Cross with a $100,000 USD disaster relief grant to help towards their immediate relief efforts. The German Red Cross are mobilising their volunteers and specialist rescue teams including paramedics, lifeguards, and local support units to help those in need, including hundreds who have been left stranded and have been forced to evacuate their homes. Funding will initially help survivors immediate needs and then recovery efforts.

German Red Cross Flooding Response
More than 3,500 of our volunteers and employees are responding to the flooding in North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate. Many people affected by the flooding will depend on our emergency relief for days and weeks. Many have lost all their possessions and need access to basic supplies.
