Thanks to your generosity and a UNFCU Foundation Board match, we contributed nearly USD 25,000 to the US Fund for UNICEF to support UNICEF Haiti’s cholera response in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. Funds from our recent online campaign will be used to improve the sanitation, hygiene, and water conditions for thousands of families living in areas most devastated by the hurricane, as well as refurbish and reopen schools.
We awarded grants to 11 organizations that are working to end poverty globally, and want to thank all of the organizations that submitted grant requests last year.
Watch our video to see how we are helping marginalized communities and to hear directly from our beneficiaries.
Watch our webinar to learn how education is the catalyst that drives change to end extreme poverty. In India and Afghanistan, our partners work with the local communities to keep girls in school and delay early marriages.
