Employee Emergency Assistance Fund (EEAF) is an open-ended fund mechanism which should be set up by the partners who wish to access IDRF. The EEAF mechanism should be equipped with the structure, operating procedures, and committee which is set through the Management Decree, in order to comply with U.S. charitable regulation. Penabulu will be closely assisting partners who wish to access IDRF in setting up the EEAF.
