When disaster strikes, it’s children who often suffer the most, especially kids living in poverty. Whether it’s a flood, hurricane or epidemic, Children’s Health Fund is committed to both responding quickly and staying for the long haul. The ability to act swiftly is critical in emergency response, and as Hurricanes Harvey and Irma have shown us, major disasters can strike in quick succession, making the need for ready resources even more important. It is for that reason the Children’s Health Fund Emergency Response Fund has been established. The CHF Emergency Response Fund will allow us to quickly deploy to the scene of a disaster to support children and families who immediately need our help, and will give us the resources necessary to address long-term recovery, an often long and arduous process.
