Disaster Preparedness

Disaster Preparedness




When a disaster strikes, people living in poverty are especially vulnerable to its impacts. This gift will provide immediate funds to our partners in the event of an emergency so that they can respond as soon as possible with life-giving assistance. It will also help people in communities to prepare for potential disasters, through support like training in first aid and how to keep safe in storms and cyclones.

How your gift helps

Each year, monsoon rains bring the risk of serious flooding to the region where these children live in northern India, threatening lives and livelihoods. But with support from Tearfund’s Christian partner EFICOR, local children and youth are better equipped to respond in disaster situations, having participated in practice drills and education sessions.

Through EFICOR’s project, families are also supported to access alternative livelihoods, providing stability in the midst of potential disruption from emergencies. This gift helps our partners respond with immediate life-giving assistance in the event of an emergency, as well as supporting initiatives that build long-term preparedness and risk-reduction for communities susceptible to disasters.
