Emergency Aid for Chinese Earthquake Victims

Posted by Donna Callejon on May 14th, 2008
To follow up on Stephanie’s post, we have been working closely with our partner organizations to establish projects to help victims of the earthquake in China. Latest news reports suggest that the death toll could reach 15,000.

We have two projects on GlobalGiving that will provide immediate assistance to those affected. We’ve partnered with Half the Sky to provide emergency shelter, food, and medical care for children orphaned or separated from their families, also temporary or long-term foster care or, if needed, temporary institutional care.

We’ve also partnered with Mercy Corps to support their response through their local partner organizations in China to provide emergency support and assistance.
