Disaster Risk Reduction and Response

We build lasting solutions for families in risk prone areas


Losing a home in the event of a disaster leaves families shattered. We improve preparedness of communities in risk prone areas and rehabilitate families in the aftermath of a disaster.

Disaster Response

We respond to disasters and humanitarian emergencies by leveraging our expertise in affordable shelter, sanitation and housing assistance. Our goal is to not just provide immediate relief to affected families, but to place them on a path to permanent, disaster-resilient shelter solutions.


Relief

When disaster strikes, our rapid response team does an immediate analysis of the housing needs and provides a humanitarian aid kit to the affected families. The kit helps with basic food needs, water and protection from the ongoing disaster.

Recovery

Once people begin recovering from the initial loss, we construct transitional shelters using locally available materials, tools and technologies to help families build temporary homes. It provides a safe, secure and healthy living environment.

Reconstruction

We work with the government and our corporate partners to build new permanent disaster-resilient homes for affected families. It provides them with a strong foundation to rebuild their lives.

Disaster Risk Reduction

We make systemic efforts to reduce vulnerability in families and their properties in disaster-prone areas. This is supported through our committed, long-term partners.


Build Disaster Resistant Homes

We build safe and disaster-resistant homes or retrofit improvements on existing houses. This increases the resistance to damage.

Community Based Disaster Risk Management

Communities are the first to respond when disaster strikes. We conduct training programs to improve their preparedness. This helps them respond effectively and mitigates the impact considerably.

Our disaster management initiatives are lead by a group of highly trained specialists

They have almost 20 years of experience in responding to and mitigating disasters.

From floods, to earthquakes, and droughts our team of experts can adeptly respond at critical times.
