Urgent Appeal for Gaza and West Africa (Ebola)

Our emergency funds are exhausted …

The world is very troubled, and innocent people are suffering greatly. Over the last month, ElectricAid has committed all of our emergency funds to four separate areas of strife, where the needs are extreme:

 

 


South Sudan Oxfam Ireland

Concern

Care for internally-displaced people (IDPs)

Nutrition for S. Sudan refugees in Ethiopia

€5,000

€7,000

Liberia ASHDI Combating the spread of Ebola €7,500
Gaza Irish Red Cross Emergency medical relief €5,000
Iraq Christian Aid Ireland IDP Care for those displaced by conflict €5,000

 

ElectricAid prioritises development over disaster. We have more requests on hand. This morning, (Tuesday 19.08), we had to refuse an urgent appeal from a trusted partner in Liberia – we have no more funds for emergency relief. But we can’t in good conscience turn our backs on the needs of hundreds of thousands of people in extreme crisis – whether they are facing Ebola in West Africa or devastation in Gaza.
We have effectively emptied our emergency capabilities, and can no longer respond. We are not running a full-blown Special Appeal at this time, but we do ask you to consider a once-off donation now. This will allow us to continue reaching out on your behalf to our brothers and sisters in crisis. Any funds received will be used for emergency relief – we anticipate mostly in Gaza and West Africa (Ebola).
