Help overwhelmed families in times of crisis


How we support communities during emergencies

Cover costs related to natural disasters and medical emergencies

Provide food assistance and financial support when income is lost

Connect families with local resources to access critical aid

Help a child in poverty get the life-changing support they need, so they can get back to building a brighter future.

The Emergency Community Fund is one of our special interventions and, together with our holistic child development program, it allows children to escape the crippling effects of poverty. When you make a gift to Emergency Community Fund, funds will directly help children who need it most – children living in poverty. Give today and change a life forever.
