Summary

Wildfires have devastate communities and incurred loss of human life across California, Oregon and Washington. When we think about disaster response and recovery, we tend to think about hunger, homelessness, and clean water. Diapers and other hygiene necessities are an overlooked, yet crucial, basic need. All babies deserve to be clean, dry, and healthy. This fund exists to serve communities hit by wildfire disasters in California, Oregon and Washington.

Challenge

Active wildfires have caused mandatory evacuations, destroyed homes, and forced thousands to flee. These families are now staying in shelters, with friends & family, or have fled the area. Living in poverty, now amplified by wildfire devastation, means many families just trying to survive are forced to choose between food & diapers.

Solution

Through provision of reusable, modern cloth diapers basic hygiene and dignity will be restored for children and their caregivers.

Long-Term Impact

As our partner organizations in California continue to have their personal care needs solved, they are able to save funds and plan for future improvements in their care. This can mean adding educational programs, offering better healthcare, improved quality of food (more protein!) - all steps that set these children and their families up for long term survival and productive members of society.
