The Fund is working with the Tzu Chi Foundation to provide relief to victims and survivors of the Typhoon and resulting mudslides.
Provide hot meals, water, basic cooking equipment, and emergency shelter to survivors; help in the recovery effort and rebuilding of houses damaged or destroyed in the mudslide.
Tzu Chi will help poverty-stricken survivors rebuild homes and provide long term financial assistance. Tzu Chi will also help rebuild schools and provide tuition assistance, and continue to provide emotional and spiritual care to affected residents.
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.
