the ELMA relief foundation

The ELMA Relief Foundation supports relief efforts for populations affected by both natural and man-made disasters, with a special emphasis on children.

ELMA Relief investments fall into three clusters:

  • Response – meeting the urgent needs of affected communities in a timely manner immediately following disaster onset
  • Recovery – rebuilding communities following a disaster
  • Risk Reduction – alleviating the suffering of underserved low-income communities affected by cyclical and predictable disasters

While The ELMA Relief Foundation may invest anywhere in the world, special consideration is given to opportunities where The ELMA Foundation’s investments in improving the lives of children in Africa may be leveraged.
