The Global Fund for Women has provided grants and worked in partnership with women struggling to rebuild their lives and communities after a number of natural disasters, including the 2004 tsunamis, the 2005 Kashmir earthquake and Hurricanes Stan and Mitch (which struck Central America in 1998). The Global Fund for Women is the largest foundation in the world focusing exclusively on international women’s rights—and our experience grows out of work with 31 women’s organizations in nine countries enduring natural disasters.
