Emergency fund

Adversity often strikes blindly!

Studies show that 1.2 billion people will be extremely vulnerable to climate change in 2050 and will potentially be forced to migrate. These vulnerabilities fall into two categories:

  • Food insecurity, water scarcity and population growth
  • Natural disasters (floods, drought, cyclones ...) and rise of the thermometer

In addition, the lack of resources generated by the deregulation risks causing a rise in geopolitical tensions and an intensification of conflicts.

This is why Un Verre d'Eau has set up an emergency fund. The aim is to be able to respond immediately to the basic needs of populations affected by a natural disaster or conflict. These needs can be diverse and varied but mainly concern access to water, food, shelter, sanitation and care.

This fund is supplied over time, by specific donations, by dedicated campaigns and possibly by surpluses that could come from other completed campaigns.


Every hour counts!

A magnitude 7,8 earthquake struck Turkey and northern Syria on Monday February 6 causing the destruction of several major cities including Kahramanmaras the epicenter and Aleppo in Syria. The latest assessment indicates at least 20 dead but it continues to increase!

The concern is now for the 300 people who find themselves without housing but also without drinking water in freezing cold and even in the snow. With each natural disaster, too many people are dying either from preventable diseases or from drinking unsafe water.

After Ana and Batsirai, let's blow a wave of generosity to raise Madagascar!

Madagascar has suffered since the beginning of 2022, the repeated onslaught of several cyclones and between the destruction of habitats and floods, the situation of the poorest on this big island is truly catastrophic.
The Un Verre d'Eau endowment fund has decided to set up a campaign to reach out very quickly to the most disadvantaged.

Eruption of the Nyiragongo volcano!

On May 22, 2021, the Nyiragongo volcano erupted followed by lava flows that destroyed three villages and a neighborhood in the city of Goma. Almost 3,500 houses were destroyed and 20,000 people were made homeless in one day.

Our friends and partners fromInter Development and Solidarity have a branch in Bukavu and were quickly able to take care of the thousands of destitute people who came to their door. Naturally, Un Verre d'Eau has contributed financially to their aid to the extent of our means and we hope to be able to do so with our other partners thanks to your donations.

How can I help ?

A donation is obviously the most effective way to help the work of Un Verre d’Eau and its partners. However, you can also help us by sharing the campaign with those around you.


Can I receive a tax receipt?

We issue tax receipts to all donors, however not all donors will be able to benefit from a tax deduction.

Individuals located in France benefit froma tax reduction of 66%. Donors residing in the European Union can also benefit from a tax reduction if their country of origin allows it. On the other hand, donors residing outside the European Union cannot claim a tax reduction in their country of origin.


Is my payment secure?

Our donation solution, Donorbox, uses Stripe's secure token mechanism. Card numbers are tokenized (the number is replaced by an indecipherable string, ie: `tok_fafds23423 ') before debiting the card. Registered cards and bank accounts for recurring donations are also tokenized. As a result, Donorbox and Un Verre d'Eau have no record of the donor's card number in their database. This means that hackers will never get sensitive banking information from us.


Can I make my donation in currencies other than the euro?

Your donations can be made in euros, pounds sterling, dollars, Canadian dollars and Swiss francs.
