Madagascar is prone to devastating disasters, including the impact of tropical cyclones, recurring drought, and development challenges. The island country faced the world's first climate-caused famines in 2021.
Hundreds of thousands of people in Southern Madagascar, including infants and children, are malnourished and suffering from severe food insecurity. The country's location also puts it at risk of recurring deadly and unpredictable cyclones, which destroy agriculture, disrupt lives, and displace many people.
All donations to this fund will support nutrition and food relief efforts in Madagascar. Initially, funding will help meet immediate needs for food, water, and hygiene products. The fund will also support long-term recovery efforts run primarily by local, vetted organizations in Madagascar.

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.
