Hurricane Eta Relief Fund

Hurricane Eta Relief Fund

Summary

Hurricane Eta first made landfall in northeastern Nicaragua with sustained winds of 140 miles an hour and widespread flooding rains across much of Central America, the Caribbean, and Florida. This relief fund will support emergency aid like food, water, medicine, and shelter. After initial needs are met, the fund will transition to provide long-term assistance as needed. All donations to this fund will exclusively support Hurricane Eta relief and recovery efforts in the impacted regions.

Challenge

Hurricane Eta has brought catastrophic wind damage and widespread flooding to Central America. The storm then turned back out to sea and caused flooding in the Caribbean and South Flordia. Local officials are doing the best to deal with evacuations and temporary shelters amid the coronavirus pandemic. Several of GlobalGiving's local nonprofit partners are responding and have asked us to help fund relief and recovery efforts on the ground.

Solution

All donations to this fund will support recovery and relief efforts for Hurricane Eta in all impacted regions. Initially, funds will help first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. The fund will later 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 this. By funding 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.

About GlobalGiving’s Disaster Response

When a disaster strikes, recovery efforts led by people who live and work in affected communities are often overlooked and underfunded. GlobalGiving is changing this reality. Since 2004, we've been shifting decision-making power to crises-affected communities through trust-based grantmaking and support.

We make it easy, quick, and safe to support people on the ground who understand needs in their communities better than anyone else.

They were there long before the news cameras arrived, and they’ll be there long after the cameras leave. They know how to make their communities more resilient to future disasters, and they’re already hard at work. GlobalGiving puts donations and grants directly into their hands. Because the status quo—which gives the vast majority of funding to a few large organizations—doesn’t make sense.
