HURRICANES IRMA, JOSE, AND MARIA: EMERGENCY RESPONSE
Flooding and strong winds from an unprecedented succession of powerful hurricanes have destroyed homes and crops in the Dominican Republic, Haiti, and other areas of the Caribbean. Hundreds of thousands of people have been displaced, and many do not have access to clean water and basic sanitation. Oxfam is responding by providing safe water, sanitation, and hygiene supplies in order to prevent the spread of diseases like cholera.
After witnessing the slow and inadequate response from the US government in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria, Oxfam has decided support local efforts to meet the most urgent needs in this disaster. We also intend to help Puerto Ricans advocate in Congress and to federal agencies in Washington to allocate more and better resources for the response to the storm to build back better.
Following the damage from Hurricanes Irma, Jose, and Maria, and anticipating more storms in the ongoing hurricane season, you can help people with urgent needs while they recover from the impact and prepare for additional threats.
Donate now to help us meet the most critical needs. 100% of funds designated for hurricane response will be used to support relief and recovery efforts for affected areas.
