Relief. Supporting communities impacted by natural disasters when local governments cannot adequately provide basic needs.

Since 1994, GCF has supported relief efforts, including those of large organizations such as the American Red Cross (Haiti, the Balkans), the Prime Minister’s Relief Fund in India, and Americares (India, Rwanda, Thailand, Turkey).

After the devastating earthquake in Nepal in 2015, we learned the quickest way to help is to reach out to our partners and regional associates in the impacted country to identify local organizations with strong leaders to support. When disaster strikes, local community organizations provide immediate relief without a lot of red tape.
