Emergency response

Emergency response

When disaster strikes, Miral Welfare Foundation dispatches emergency responders within 72 hours in order to minimize damages by distributing basic necessities and restoring essential environment. We promote disaster risk reduction programs for resilience of the communities to cope with disasters independently.

Disaster consistently strikes every year. It is getting serious due to climate change, conflicts and disputes between countries, and chronic food crisis. The most vulnerable countries, however, are damaged much more seriously and require more time to recover. 2 million people died from disasters during past 30 years and 180,000 people died from wars last year.

    6. 6. Strengthen local capacity to respond to disasters.
    7. 7. Explore ways for program beneficiaries to participate in the management of relief activities.

    9. 9. We are responsible for both those we support and those who support us.
    10. 10. In our data collection and publicity activities, we recognize disaster victims as dignified human beings, not subjects of sympathy.
