We aim to secure the health and safety of disaster-affected persons in emergency situations by coordinating closely with implementing agencies on the ground. This includes organizing emergency relief kits, medical camps, access to clean water, supporting reconstruction of damaged houses and rehabilitation through enterprise building for those who have lost their source of livelihood.
