Please help this cause!

Those in the Caribbean are in a unique position of being completely isolated given the significant damage to entire infrastructures (airports, electrical/telephone systems, homes, hospitals, schools...the list goes on). Many islands are not expected to regain running water or electricity for 6 months -1 year. People are in desperate need of supplies, reporting that they are running out of food and clean water. The affected includes innocent CHILDREN, and I feel it is up to us to help them.

Many US organizations have been asking for money without specific goals in mind, this organization makes it clear and by donating money to this team you will know the funds are going exactly to the children affected by Hurricane Irma, both in the Caribbean and the US.
Among other things, Save the Children emergency teams are:
• Delivering family-friendly relief supplies including cribs, strollers, changing tables, baby shampoo, diapers and baby-safe portable tubs.
• Setting up Child-friendly spaces in shelters where kids can play and learn while parents manage their family’s emergency needs.
• Providing specially trained staff to help children dealing with difficult emotions that can come up during disasters.
• Planning for the long-term recovery, helping communities restore child-care, early education programs and children’s emotional well-being.

Save the Children is extremely effective at getting volunteers on the ground to make actual change in areas of disaster. Last year their organization was able to use 86.5% of expenditures directly towards program services, with only 8.3% going to fundraising and 5.2% to management & general administrative costs.
