Your donations support the delivery of safe water to victims of natural and humanitarian disasters around the world!
**We are actively responding to communities impacted by Hurricanes Fiona and Ian**
Hurricane Fiona, this year’s first major hurricane for the Atlantic region – has already devastated the islands of Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. Landslides, blocked roads, fallen trees and power lines, and collapsed bridges have left much of the islands without access to critical resources like water and electricity. It left over 200,000 people in Puerto Rico and 1,018,564 across the Dominican Republic, due to severe flooding and nonfunctioning aqueducts.
Not even a week later, Hurricane Ian has wreaked havoc across parts of the Caribbean. The nearly category 5 storm has now made landfall in Florida, where communities are facing catastrophic damage.
LifeStraw is working with new and longstanding partners, and has already shipped hundreds of filters to Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic -- to ensure access to safe drinking water and to help avoid waterborne disease outbreaks.
We are monitoring the situation with Hurricane Ian as well, and are ready to respond with additional products.
Please donate to help us get safe water to additional families. 100% of donations cover the cost of products; LifeStraw does not profit from your donation.
