Thank you—we can’t say it enough! Because of your generosity, people struggling after Typhoon Doksuri/Egay were able to receive support for their emergency needs of food, water, shelter, and medicines, and long-term recovery in affected communities.
The Typhoon Doksuri/Egay Relief Fund has powered 4 grants to high-impact and community-led nonprofit organizations at the forefront of this crisis.
Here is a description of the critical work you’ve supported:
One Foundation - Shenzhen is a Southern China-based partner active in distribution of emergency supplies, shelter, WASH, mental health and psychosocial support, and a variety of other broadly related activities in response.
China Foundation for Rural Development is a large-scale, nationwide Chinese social services nonprofit with four primary areas of focus: health improvement, education equality, rural development and humanitarian aid. Since the flooding began in early August, CRDF has been providing affected communities with temporary resettlement support, disaster assessments, distribution of emergency supplies, distribution of rescue equipment and generators, and provision of WASH and food supplies.
Shining Star Organizationis a rural children-focused education organization based in southern China that offers scholarships, training for teachers, and resilience-focused curriculum training in rural areas of China in the south, where effects of the recent flooding and typhoon were heavily felt and caused disproportionate impact to low-income and rural families.
Shanghai Rendu Ocean NPO Development Centre is an environmental justice-focused organization based in Shanghai which focuses its efforts on volunteer beach cleanup and ocean conservation in central eastern China, which faced flooding, typhoon damage, and now is undergoing extensive cleanup efforts following recent and ongoing storms.
Your support of the GlobalGiving Typhoon Doksuri/Egay Relief Fund is advancing community-led recovery, and it means that communities in southern China and surrounding countries received critical resources to help their community rebuild after this devastating typhoon.
This fund is no longer accepting donations, and this will be the last fund report of this kind from our team. 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.
