PATH Intl. Disaster Relief Fund
Because the COVID19 crisis is still unfolding and the PATH Intl. Disaster Relief Funds are limited and we don’t know how many applications we may get or how extensive losses may be, we must hold all PATH Intl. Disaster Relief applications until we have more information on the extent of the crisis and need. 

We are sorry for the delay, but under the guidelines of the fund, we are expected to respond after understanding the impact of any given disaster.
