These towns have already been inundated in clothes and food. What they need now is funding. Thirsty Cow needs your help to give these people what they need to rebuild their businesses and their lives.
With your help Thirsty Cow’s first priority is to provide:
Temporary accommodation modules – 100 dongas @ $10,000 each
Furniture packs (to furnish the dongas) – 100 packs @ $5,000 each
Power generators – 100 @ $500 each
Shipping containers for people’s storage – 100 @ $3,000 on average
Total fund goal = $1,580,000
