Major flooding has occurred in Thailand during the 2011 monsoon season. Many homes were destroyed, and some families lost all their possessions. Mae's books and school supplies were destroyed in the floods, and it will cost $250 to replace everything so that she can return to school and complete 7th grade.
The flooding has covered over six million hectares of land. Homes and goods were washed away, and many families were left homeless. People need assistance to begin rebuilding their lives.
This donation will allow Mae to replace the books and supplies that she lost in the flood, so that she can return to school and continue her education.
Mae will be able to return to school, finish her education and build a better future.
When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.
We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.
They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
