What's Happening and How to Help

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 these. 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.

The projects listed below are led by vetted GlobalGiving partners responding to the this disaster. You can donate directly to a specific project or to GlobalGiving’s Madagascar Famine Relief Fund and we'll allocate it to where it's needed most. GlobalGiving will post reports about how your donation has been put to use.

Emergency Food Distribution in Madagascar
The extreme food shortages and economic impacts of COVID-19, combined with the severe climate-induced drought in southern Madagascar, have rendered over 1.14 million people acutely food insecure. Women and children face heightened vulnerability to hunger, contributing to life-threatening surges in the incidence of malnutrition. Since February 2021, SEED's Emergency Food Distribution Programme has been working to improve the immediate health and long-term resilience of food insecure communities.
Support to Malagasy Travel Community for a Month
COVID-19 has made it challenging for most families working in the hospitality and tourism industry. Hunger and poverty play out privately in the lives of thousands of travel community. Hunger plays out quietly in classrooms as students try to keep up with their lessons. It plays out in the homes as they sacrifice meals to afford medication. It plays out in hushed conversation between parents, as they try to stretch stagnant paychecks. Help distressed employees and students in the travel industry
End Hunger in Madagascar with Girls' Education
In Madagascar girls as young as 9 years old get sold off to marry much older men. With 80% of the population relying on farming as a source of income women become commodity. Nofy i Androy equips girls with tools to fight early child marriage, early pregnancies, and cyclical famines. This project will promise girls with college degrees and aid vulnerable communities in fighting cyclical famines caused by climate change. We believe education is the only way to get out of poverty.

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.
