People come to Crisis Response on Facebook to let friends and family know they’re safe, learn and share more about what’s happening and help communities recover. Community Help was added a year ago to make it easier for people to ask for and give help during a crisis. But people helping people is only part of the solution. Organizations and businesses also play an integral role in responding to crises and helping communities rebuild.
Today we’re announcing that organizations and businesses can post in Community Help, so that they can provide critical information and services for people to get the help they need in a crisis.
We’re beginning to roll out the feature to Pages for organizations and businesses like Direct Relief, Lyft, Chase, Feeding America, International Medical Corps, The California Department of Forestry and Fire and Save the Children and will make the feature available to more in the coming weeks.
