Challenge

Floods in Chennai have killed hundreds of people and have caused widespread damage in the region. Several of our local nonprofit partners are responding to survivors' immediate needs and have asked us to help fund their relief and recovery efforts on the ground.

Solution

All donations to this fund will support recovery and relief efforts in Chennai. Initially, the fund will help first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. Once initial relief work is complete, this fund will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations such the ROSI Foundation and Learning Links.

Long-Term Impact

We believe that organisations that are deeply-rooted in local communities are in the best position to provide long-term support for flood victims. By funding the relief efforts of local organisations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger response capacity so that these organisations are better equipped to face future challenges. GlobalGiving will post reports about how funds have been used and will email these reports to donors and subscribers.
