Our brothers and sisters across the country have been going through some very difficult times and need our help. Here are some organizations you can donate to in order to help victims of the recent slew of disasters. Click on the header to be redirected to the organization’s page.
Direct Relief is a humanitarian aid organisation, active in all 50 states and more than 80 countries, with a mission to improve the health and lives of people affected by poverty or emergencies. Programs Nongovernmental, nonsectarian, and not-for-profit, Direct Relief provides assistance to people and communities without regard to politics, religious beliefs, or ethnic identities. Currently tagged as emergencies you can donate directly to are the Mexico Earthquakes, Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Maria, and Puerto Rico.
United for Puerto Rico is an initiative spearheaded by the First lady of Puerto Rico, Beatriz Rosselló together with the private sector in order to provide aid and support to those affected in Puerto Rico by the passage of Hurricane Irma and Hurricane María.
UNICEF USA is the American arm of the United Nations Children’s Fund that aims to save and protect the lives of children through fundraising, advocacy and education in the United States. They are currently mobilizing to get immediate, critical support — Emergency Relief Kits — to the children of Puerto Rico. A donation of just $28 will provide a kit containing basic, essential supplies such as water purification tablets, a water bucket with lid, water containers, soap, toothpaste, detergent and sanitary pads. The supplies will help children and their families keep clean and healthy, protecting them from diseases that can occur after the loss of equipment and infrastructure and the disruption of a safe water supply.
When you purchase a Be Smart, Get Prepared first aid kit at Sam’s Club, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Vision HimPossible, a non-profit organization in the United States that supports various ministries and missionaries in Mexico, among other countries.
