Our goal
Provide vulnerable child survivors with the basic need of diapers
The Challenge

Hurricanes Harvey and Irma devastated Texas and Florida

Hurricane Harvey has caused widespread, catastrophic flooding and damage in Texas and along the Gulf Coast; while Hurricane Irma devastated Florida and the Caribbean. In the state of Florida alone, there are 171,281 children who live in homes at or below Federal Poverty Level. Living in extreme poverty, now amplified by hurricane devastation, means many families are forced to choose between food & diapers.

This fund will provide relief to child survivors in the form of cloth diapers as part of longer-term recovery assistance to help those impacted meet the basic diapering needs of their children. All donations to this fund will exclusively support relief and recovery efforts from these storms.

Our Solution

Provision of diapers will increase sanitation and hygiene for children

Children are the most vulnerable population when a disaster strikes. For young infants and children, who depend upon a supply of diapers for basic sanitation and hygiene, a disaster can be extremely devastating. Inadequate or no diapers, especially in times of stress, can lead to significant negative health consequences.

Your Impact

Change a child's life with the simple gift of diapers

When we think about basic needs, we tend to think of food, clothing, and shelter. Unless you have a young child or person with special needs, you probably don't think about diapers. Your generous support will change lives for vulnerable children, by ending the choice between food & diapers.
