Project HOPE - The People-to-People Health Foundation, Inc.
Project HOPE is monitoring Hurricane Willa which developed at an incredible rate since it formed, becoming a Category 5 storm off the coast of Mexico. Teams are in the region on alert as the storm threatens to bring torrential rains and major flooding to southwestern Mexico. They have an emergency response team of staff and medical volunteers on standby to deploy.
"Staff in Mexico are well positioned to activate a swift response. Direct Relief is a Mexican-registered NGO with ample, medical grade storage space, and working relationships with the National Ministry of Health, COPAC and the Pan American Health Organization."
United States Fund for UNICEF
Now, as Mexico faces Hurricane Willa, UNICEF will continue tracking the storm's progress and assess the potential impact on children. As with their successful partnerships following Hurricane Harvey (City of Houston) and Hurricane Maria (Puerto Rico), their efforts will adhere to UNICEF's core priorities: health, education, child protection and psychosocial support.
