Summary

Hurricane Sandy has caused massive destruction and dislocation along the East Coast of the United States and extensive flooding in the Caribbean. This fund will support relief efforts by organizations working in multiple locations, including River Fund in New York, International Medical Corps in Haiti, and Save the Children across impacted areas, to provide emergency assistance to those in need. Specific project distributions will be communicated as allocations are made.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Both regions in the Caribbean and the United States have experienced significant damage from Hurricane Sandy; hundreds of thousands have been left homeless, and even more are struggling to access basic necessities.

How will this project solve this problem?

This fund will support disaster recovery and relief efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in the Caribbean islands and the United States. Initial funds will help survivors and victims get necessary supplies including food, fuel, clean water, hygiene products, and shelter. Funds will also go toward psychological support and trauma counseling for children and families.

Potential Long Term Impact

Major disasters always require a huge amount of support to provide both immediate relief and recovery. Organizations that are deeply-rooted in local communities are often the in the best position to provide long-term support for disaster victims. Once recovery work is complete, this fund will transition to support longer-term recovery efforts by those types of organizations.
