Summary

Cyclone Pam has caused significant damage in Vanuatu, an island nation in the South Pacific. At least 8 people have been killed by the storm, and thousands of people have been displaced. The full extent of the damage is still being assessed, but aid groups are mobilizing to provide support and emergency supplies to the people impacted by the storm. All donations to this fund will exclusively support relief and recovery efforts in Vanuatu.

Challenge

Cyclone Pam has caused widespread damage in Vanuatu. Several of our international partners need help responding to survivors' immediate needs, and our local nonprofit partners have also asked for help in funding their relief and recovery efforts on the ground.

Solution

All donations to this fund will support disaster recovery and relief efforts in response to Vanuatu. 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 local organizations.

Long-Term Impact

We believe that organizations that are deeply-rooted in local communities are often in the best position to provide long-term support for disaster victims. By funding the relief efforts of local organizations, donations to this fund have the potential to build stronger disaster-response capacity so that these organizations are better equipped to face future disasters. GlobalGiving will post reports about how funds have been used and will email these reports to donors and subscribers.
