Challenge

Even in advance of making landfall, rain from Tropical Storm Barry has caused flooding in New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. GlobalGiving's local nonprofit partners monitoring the situation and are ready to respond to survivors' needs. They have asked us to help fund their relief and recovery efforts on the ground.

Solution

All donations to this fund will support recovery and relief efforts for Tropical Storm Barry. Initially, the fund helped first responders meet survivors' immediate needs for food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. The fund will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts run by local, vetted organizations in the Gulf Coast.

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 Tropical Storm Barry. 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.
