Challenge

Hurricane Isaac has made landfall and has been downgraded to a tropical depression. Although the damage from hurricane force winds has been minimal, there has been extensive damage from widespread flooding.

Solution

This fund will support to several organizations providing emergency and long term relief along the Gulf Coast for those affected by Hurricane Isaac and the resulting floods, including the Save the Children.

Long-Term Impact

Natural disasters always require a huge amount of support to provide immediate relief and long term recovery efforts. In this case, these initial funds will help people affected by the storm system get necessary services and supplies. Over time this fund will transition to support longer term recovery efforts.
