When disaster strikes, the effects are devastating to everyone involved, along with their families, friends, and communities.
The plight of victims and survivors alike are broadcast immediately. But what happens when the cameras leave? Too often, the public is unaware of suffering that continues and compounds long after the initial event. When infrastructure is damaged, lives are at stake long past a storm, an earthquake, an eruption. People and animals are in a fragile state and need longer-term help to not just survive, but to recover. In such cases, supplies and assistance teams long after the news story has passed are key to recovery, resilience, and rebuilding lives.
GreaterGood.org assists disaster survivors immediately, and then provides longer-term support to communities struggling to recover and build enough resilience to weather the next event. By partnering directly with caring businesses and key supply manufacturers, GreaterGood.org is able to effectively fill unmet needs of stricken communities. These supplies include medical and veterinary; food and clean water; animal care supplies; clothing and educational materials; and more. Our partners on the ground use these supplies and materials as they rebuild homes, lives, and communities.
You can help meet this vital need! Please consider supporting the shipment of response and recovery supplies today.
