In the aftermath of any major disaster, you can be sure that GlobalGiving will be there to connect you to vetted, locally-driven organizations that will remain on the job for the long haul.


 
Airi is a 6th grader in Fukushima, Japan. Since the meltdown of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Plant in 2011, she's only allowed to play outside for 30 minutes at a time because of the lingering radiation in the environment. She's not allowed to drink tap water and needs to wear a mask on her way to school.

More than three years after the disaster, GlobalGiving is still supporting Fukushima Kids to make sure that Airi can go to summer camp in areas safe from radiation, where she can go on field trips and play outside without worry.

In the aftermath of any major disaster, you can be sure that GlobalGiving will be there to connect you to vetted, locally-driven organizations that will remain on the job for the long haul. The three projects below are perfect examples of that promise -- they're still hard at work driving recovery today, long after the news crews have packed up and moved on.

Fukushima Typhoon Haiyan Hurricane Sandy
Fukushima Kids Children's Joy Foundation Baby Buggy
Today, more than three years after the Japanese nuclear disaster, Fukushima Kids is providing outdoor recreational services to 500 children affected by the earthquake each year who still face restrictions on when they can play outside. Since Haiyan hit the Philippines last November, Children's Joy Foundation has supported the ongoing recovery by distributing new fishing boats to families along the coast so they can continue to generate food for the entire community. Hurricane Sandy came ashore in NJ and NY in 2012, and two years later communities are struggling to return to normal. Baby Buggy has helped storm-damaged Early Head Start centers reopen stronger than before.

Mainstream media stories about long-term recovery are scarce. But when you give to a project on GlobalGiving you'll receive regular updates to see how they're rebuilding communities and helping kids like Airi.

Thank you for your enduring and generous support of communities recovering from disasters.
