Greg (name has been changed) was working in Texas when Hurricane Harvey arrived
After Hurricane Harvey hit Texas, USA, the Fund contacted local members to remind them if their homes or livelihoods were affected by the hurricane and flooding, the Chemists’ Community Fund may be able to provide assistance. Some of Greg's possessions were damaged by the flooding, and he was awarded a grant to replace them.
“I came to Houston a month before Harvey hit to start my postdoc and I never thought I would face an uphill struggle due to the effects of the weather. It gave me joy and happiness when I heard that due to my financial difficulties [the Chemists’ Community Fund] could provide a grant to me to replace my flood damaged mobile.”
