Thank you for your generous donation to the Madagascar Famine Relief Fund. Donations to this GlobalGiving fund continue to make a difference, helping to ensure trusted nonprofit partners are able to combat the risk of famine in southern Madagascar.
This spring, donations to the Madagascar Famine Relief Fund have supported one grant to a high-impact and community-led organization at the forefront of this crisis.
Here is a short description of some of the critical work you are supporting:
Plateforme HINA a Malagasy-led organization is coordinating with 20 of its 200+ network partners to deliver food packages to 750 individuals (or 150 families). The organization is focusing its support on female-headed households and families with children under 5 years old facing the greatest food insecurity in southern Madagascar. The platform’s members include previous fund grantees, such as Ny Tanintsika.
Your support of the GlobalGiving Madagascar Famine Relief Fund powers community-led responses. It means teams like Plateforme HINA’s can deliver the critical resources they need to help their community fight and recover from food insecurity, including in the aftermath of devastating cyclones.
Project reports on GlobalGiving are posted directly to globalgiving.org by Project Leaders as they are completed, generally every 3-4 months. To protect the integrity of these documents, GlobalGiving does not alter them; therefore you may find some language or formatting issues.
If you donate to this project or have donated to this project, you can recieve an email when this project posts a report. You can also subscribe for reports without donating.
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.
