Challenge

The 2019 monsoon season has been particularly devastating this year, resulting in thousands of casualties and the displacement of 1.8 million people, as severe flooding impacts India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Pakistan, and Myanmar. Prolonged flooding and extreme landslides have damaged infrastructure, and in some cases, affecting the government's ability to provide humanitarian relief. Several of GlobalGiving's local nonprofit partners are responding to survivors' immediate needs and have asked us to

Solution

All donations to this fund will support recovery and relief efforts for flooding and monsoons in South Asia. Initially, the fund will help first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. Once initial relief work is complete, this fund will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations in the region.

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 these floods. 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. GlobalGiving will post reports about how funds have been used and will email these reports to donors.
