Providing immediate and integrated,multi-sectoral assistance in emergency situations
Our emergency management approach is to save lives and reduce suffering to disaster affected community, deliver coordinated and integrated emergency life saving interventions to affected communities and strengthen preparedness, mitigation and Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) programs that benefit vulnerable households.
The initial interventions were in emergency and relief, but currently the interventions have expanded to include rehabilitation and development interventions in health, water, education, energy, agriculture, cash for work, food for work, distribution of Non-Food Items (NFI) and capacity building.
1. Save lives and reduce suffering of disaster affected.
2. Provide access and restitution of learning in emergency situations.
3. Apply disaster risk management mechanisms to protect livelihoods and reduce social and economic loses.
In 2019, our Emergency sector impacted 17,041 lives through our emergency management interventions aimed at saving lives and reducing suffering to disaster affected communities.
