Challenge

Hurricane Delta brought devastating flooding and winds to the Louisiana coast on October 9th, just six weeks after Hurricane Laura hit the same area. This storm is setting back existing recovery efforts and additional support will be required to support those impacted and to repair and rebuild tens of thousands of homes. At least 600,000 people are without power as recovery efforts continue.

Solution

All donations to this fund will support relief and recovery after Hurricane Delta. Initially, funds will help first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. As needed, the fund will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run primarily by local, vetted organizations in the communities affected.

Long-Term Impact

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