The Pew Charitable Trusts is driven by the power of knowledge to solve today's most challenging problems. Pew applies a rigorous, analytical approach to improve public policy, inform the public and stimulate civic life.
When Hurricane Katrina devastated New Orleans and the U.S. Gulf Coast in 2005, Pew provided significant disaster relief through the American Red Cross. That was just one of the latest examples of a partnership between Pew and the Red Cross that dates all the way back to Pew’s founding in 1948.
Pew has stepped forward in the aftermath of natural disasters many other times. We have assisted relief efforts in Venezuela following rain-induced flooding and mudslides that claimed an estimated 30,000 lives and left some 400,000 people homeless; aided victims of Hurricane Floyd in the Greater Delaware Valley and North Carolina; supported those left injured or homeless by a massive earthquake in El Salvador; and provided contributions to many other such efforts.
