Wellington, Fla. – Sept. 30, 2022 – In response to the widespread devastation brought on by Hurricane Ian, the Equestrian Assist Basis has opened its Catastrophe Aid Fund to assist horsemen within the storm’s path with their most pressing wants as they work to regain stability.
“Whereas the Equestrian Assist Basis is absolutely operational after the storm, this one hit house for us as a result of Florida is house,” mentioned board member Robert Ross of the Wellington-based charity. “We have been fortunate, and now it’s time to get to work for these in our equestrian group who weren’t.”
Equestrians who’re in rapid want of help within the aftermath of Hurricane Ian are invited to apply for support.
The emergency program can be funded via a $20,000 allocation from EAF’s Catastrophe Aid Fund. Created in 2018, the fund exists to help equestrian communities in disaster resulting from unexpected and dire circumstances. Disbursements are meant to assist recipients with their most pressing and rapid wants. Lately, EAF has activated Catastrophe Aid funds in response to hurricanes, wildfire, drought, flooding, and the 2020 business shutdown precipitated by the COVID-19 pandemic.
