CWS Disaster Response Program: Responding to Ongoing Unmet Needs
CWS Disaster Response Program provides emergency relief and long-term support to survivors of natural disasters. The type of support provided varies based on the needs of the communities affected and the partnerships we have established. While we offer support to all families, we are particularly concerned about migrant families with meager income who are typically marginalized and struggle to repair their homes, purchase basic household items, and regain some sense of normalcy after a natural disaster.
