Millions of people have been affected by Cyclone Mocha. Thousands of homes have been destroyed in western Myanmar in places like Sittwe and in shelters in Cox Bazar, considered the world's largest refugee camp, where families live in fragile tents and makeshift structures. Thousands of people were evacuated to schools, monasteries, and other shelters, and within hours of landfall, the storm caused hundreds of deaths, destroyed homes, and cut off power.
All donations to this fund will support Cyclone Mocha relief and recovery efforts. Initially, the fund helps first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, medicine, and shelter. As needs emerge, we will support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations in the impacted area. GlobalGiving's partners are already hard at work serving refugees in the affected areas.

- Provide food and emergency medical supplies to people and animals
- Support temporary shelter and emergency supplies to displaced families
- Provide support to front-line workers
- Meet other needs as they emerge
