Cause of the Week: Disaster Relief

Disaster Relief Week

Oct. 9-15, 2017

When a disaster strikes a region, the destruction can be sudden, but the effects can last for generations. Disaster relief includes immediate support for afflicted regions, such as food and medical attention, as well as training for responders and tools to help communities rebuild. When you donate to disaster relief charities through the CFC, you also help prepare for natural disasters that have yet to occur.

With the recent string of natural  disasters, relief support is as crucial as ever before. When hurricanes hit the Texas Gulf Coast, Florida, Puerto Rico, and the Caribbean, and when earthquakes shuddered parts of Mexico, CFC charities were on the scene to save lives and rebuild communities.

Here's how you can make an impact:

  • $50 provides high-energy food for disaster survivors
  • $85 buys a relief bed that provides portable and durable comfort to separate survivors from the hard ground
  • $100 buys 50 coffee plants for farmers who suffered crop losses after a hurricane

Don’t just learn about it, post about it! Have you or someone you know been affected by a natural disaster? Who was there to help during these times of need? Share why disaster relief is an important cause. And remember to #ShowSomeLoveCFC!
