Center For Disaster Philanthropy
The Center for Disaster Philanthropy (CDP) recently launched its 2019 Hurricane Season Recovery Fund. The fund, much like CDP’s other funds, will focus on medium and long-term recovery needs, which may include rebuilding homes and livelihoods; meeting the needs of vulnerable populations; supporting mental health services; and addressing pressing needs that will arise after immediate relief needs are met.
Convoy Of Hope
As a faith-based, nonprofit organization Convoy of Hope helps people throughout the world by sharing food, water, emergency supplies, agricultural know-how, and opportunities that empower people to live independent lives, free from poverty, disease and hunger. They are deploying 24 shipments over the next four weeks to the Bahamas which will include shelf-stable food, water, tarps, hygiene kits and lights.
Team Rubicon utilizes the skills and experiences of military veterans and first responders to rapidly deploy emergency response teams.
