Help To Rebuild Lives Following Disasters

November 28, 2017

Your purchases from The Good Buy help to fund UUSC's vital human rights projects around the globe, including our disaster relief responses. In the wake of a natural disaster, UUSC works to find and support those individuals who are left out of international relief responses. Here are just a few of the recent impacts we've accomplished with your help: 

  • Following the 7.8 magnitude earthquake in 2015, UUSC’s partners in Nepal have worked to assist vulnerable communities by ensuring access to disaster relief and health services, training community members in trauma recovery and resilience, and safeguarding equitable education opportunities for traditionally marginalized children in earthquake-affected regions.
  • After the historic flooding in West Virginia in 2016, UUSC grants to Legal Aid of West Virginia (LAWV) provided legal assistance to over 110 individuals in need of counsel. LAWV attorneys helped clients receive over $80,000 in flood assistance enabling them to buy new homes or repair damaged ones.
  • For years, UUSC has supported SoilFarm Multi-Culture Group’s programs for sustainable agriculture and livelihood development in Kenya, contributing to more food-secure communities in advance of the crippling droughts now devastating East Africa and leading to major famine.
