Grants from the Disaster Relief Fund target the special needs of women and girls recovering from the effects of natural disasters or armed conflicts.
While the nature of disasters often leads to the desire to offer immediate help, experience shows that planning projects providing longer term assistance are more sustainable and effective.
Clubs and Unions from either region are eligible to apply for grants of up to € 15,000 to aid women and girls to recover from disasters such as earthquakes, floods, tsunamis, storms and volcanic eruptions. The Disaster Relief Fund has awarded grants for projects benefiting the victims of floods in the Balkans, Syrian refugees in camps in Turkey, survivors of typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines and the communities affected by the earthquakes in Italy.
Soroptimists wishing to submit a project for a Disaster Grant should contact SIE headquarters at siehq[at]soroptimisteurope.org.
