Challenge

In natural disasters the need to immediately respond is crucil. For example, take our work in responding to the full impact of Cyclone Nargis. The situation is only now becomiis only now becoming clear. The death toll is currently estimated at 22,500 people with some 41,000 missing, and the number of displaced is estimated between 200,000 and several million people. These numbers are likely to rise in the coming days. Your contribution will help CHF to provide shelter for hundreds of families

Solution

CHF has extensive emergency shelter programs—in Peru, Indonesia, and Sri Lanka—by providing shelter solutions, water and sanitation, and livelihoods opportunities to help people get back on their feet.

Long-Term Impact

We hope to get people into immediate shelter, and as we have in the past, we will focus on longer-term recovery to ensure that people are given the resources to build back better.
