Build Rescue Boats in Flood Prone Communities

Today only, it's 50% easier to give Mae's family a boat

Donate today so she
Donate today so she'll be safe during floods

We’re delighted to report that we’ve delivered our first boat! The delivery was made just in time – it’s been raining here every night since we dropped it off!

While this happy community is now much safer during floods, there are still hundreds of families – like Mae’s – who are facing this rainy season without a boat! It’s already raining here in Banaba, and the floods are coming.

We urgently need funds so that we can build rescue boats before the rainy season kicks into high gear in July.

Today, GlobalGiving is helping us protect Mae and her family by matching your donations! That means that when you give, GlobalGiving will add 50% to your donation. Every donation brings us closer to completing our next boat, so please give what you can!
