OSO EMERGENCY FUNDS

The recent tragedy in Oso has left many asking how they can help. Our friends at the Greater Everett Community Foundation have provided the following information. 

The Community Foundation has opened an Emergency Fund to provide assistance for the communities impacted by the tragic mud slide on March 22, 2014. Consistent with the Community Foundation’s focus on sustainable solutions, the Emergency Fund will aid in long-term recovery and community rebuilding. This could include relief for displaced families and individuals, animal welfare, environmental needs, community clean-up, rebuilding and more. The Community Foundation will work in partnership with local government entities, nonprofits and other community organizations to identify the best way to provide support to assist the people and communities affected. Distributions will be overseen by a committee of community volunteers and foundation staff.

Credit card donations can be made online via our partner the Seattle Foundation or checks can be mailed to the Greater Everett Community Foundation, PO Box 5549, Everett WA 98206.

Other Support Options

Aleph Fackenthall from the non profit ‘The Healing Fund’ shared about their yearly outreach to Panama.
 
In Panama, one of the leading causes of illness and death of children in the indigenous Guaymi population, is gastrointestinal infections often traced to polluted drinking water and unsanitary practices.  To help alleviate this problem, the Healing Fund has partnered with several Rotary clubs to drill wells and install water catchment systems in remote communities which have little or no outside humanitarian aid.   They  also provide medical & dental clinics, facilitate community health training, teach English and make kids smile with face painting, balloon animals and pictures.  
 
Over the last 10 years Healing Fund has established working relationships, trained teams and supplied materials and funds so that well drilling can continue year round in their absence.  They are slowly turning the well drilling operation into a ‘cottage business’ that can be sustained without direct involvement.
Trip participants pay for all their own travel as well as for much of the tanks, wells and medicines expenses.  The Healing Fund has no administrative fees and allocated donations go directly to covering the costs of the wells and tank materials. 
 
The Healing Funds goal is to provide for all whom they serve a new, more hopeful outlook on life while providing trip participants the immeasurable benefits of helping others.  They are always grateful for the support of like-minded individuals and groups that help them to serve the many underprivileged of Panama.
