An update on your donation to the Thailand Relief Fund
By Chase Williams | Program Officer
Thank you — we can’t say it enough! Because of your generosity, people impacted by the recent flooding in Thailand were able to receive meaningful support from a trusted nonprofit organization in GlobalGiving’s nonprofit network.
Your donation to the Thailand Flood Relief Fundpowered an emergency grant to Raks Thai Foundation, a vetted GlobalGiving nonprofit partner and member of CARE International. Working closely with women and the elderly in North and Central Thailand, Raks Thai Foundation is providing income alternatives to rural families who lost their crops in the floods to help communities recover financially.
Your support is advancing community-led recovery, and it means impacted people receive critical resources to help their community rebuild after the flooding.
This fund is no longer accepting donations, and this will be the last fund report of this kind from our team. Needless to say, we hope you’ll stay in touch!

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.
