They Say That Love is All You Need
In the days, weeks, and months following a disaster, timing is critical. However, the scarcity of resources during times of crisis can create hardships for families who need food, water, shelter, and medical care in order to survive.
Plan's knowledge of communities, local structures, and institutions has enabled us to assist children and families in times of crisis. Our Disaster Relief and Recovery Fund has allowed us to forge new relationships and provide long-term recovery and rehabilitation programs that enable communities to develop, grow, and ultimately become self-sustaining long after the aid has been delivered.
