Disaster Services

Relief & Rehabilitation work

Almost every year flood and winter season we participated in Relief & Rehabilitation work.

Why Disaster Services?

Increased frequency of natural disasters, such as cyclones and floods, lean season crises and drought, is likely to undermine poverty reduction efforts. Coping strategies adopted by the poor such as reducing food intake, withdrawing children from school and selling productive assets increase the vulnerability of low-income households and worsens people’s prospects for escaping the poverty cycle.

Our Approach

Almost every year flood and winter season we participated in Relief & Rehabilitation work. We distributed Blankets and warm clothes in winter season and food for flood-affected people of Kurigram island areas. This four-step of approach to a disaster gives us the maximum productivity. 

1- Monitoring

Our Disaster Response Team regularly monitor developing weather conditions and other forms of natural disasters. By staying up to date on potential situations, we can deploy assessment teams and supplies quickly.

2- Assessment

Our Disaster Response Team consistently sends assessment teams to the field to measure our level of response. Our assessment teams gather critical information and report that back to our Operations Center where the scope of our response is determined.

3- Response

Disaster response efforts vary depending on the nature of a disaster. Teams in the field distribute relief supplies to the survivors, coordinate volunteers and local authorities which is an essential part of our disaster response work.

4- Recovery

Long after the attention has lifted from a disaster area we continue our work for months and years. Our goal is not only to be one of the first organizations to respond to a disaster, but also one of the last to leave. In doing so, we bring immediate and long-term relief to those who are suffering.
