In the recent past, due to a shift in the weather pattern, several regions have experienced rains and floods. These devastating natural disasters have left millions homeless and without proper clothes and clean water. While governments supply them with the necessities, it is just not enough and as a result they have been suffering without the adequate help. If you are interested in helping them out, here are a few things you can donate to help them out. Though your donation does not have to come in the form of money or goods and if you have some time of your own to donate, they will appreciate it just as much.

* Tents are a great help to those who have lost their houses and are waiting for their shelter to be rebuilt. Tents will provide the shelter they need and they will have a place to stay worm and dry. Children as well as their families are being separated due to the lack of space available but with a good tent, they can all stay peacefully even with the limited space.
* Clean water is of utmost importance and even though you are not expected to send bottles of water, you can donate money to a charity that can. Clean water will provide these unfortunate people with proper drinking water. It will also help reduce any kind of disease outbreak as they will have safe water to drink. Recently we have all heard about the cholera outbreak in Haiti due to a lack of clean water and we can actively work on helping them out.
* If you have a few dollars to spare, you are able to donate that too, through various charity websites. The money goes into providing them with clean clothes and food. Even though you may feel that your little donation is not much, it will add up and it will help them a lot more than you can expect.
