IRCDS provides emergency assistance to communities at risk in times of natural disasters and during pandemic including COVID. We ensure that they realise their right to clean water, food, sanitation and other fundamental needs. In particular, we reach out to women, adolescent girls, children, persons with disabilities and elderly people among these communities.
An equally important aspect of our work is disaster risk reduction, or building resilience among communities to natural disasters. We do this by enhancing the preparedness of our program communities on the ground, networks of humanitarian support providers, and of the communities themselves, to cope with sudden natural disasters. Some of our interventions towards this are:
- Awareness on community based DRR and Response
- Public Awareness Campaign on COVID and Vaccination
- Covid Relief activities among most affected communities
- Enhancing the preparedness of program communities
