Why we need disaster relief?
According to the Centre for Research on the Epidemiology of
Disasters (CRED), 337 catastrophes related to natural hazards
were reported worldwide in 2014. They affected 94 countries.
While this might seem like an enormous amount, the number of
natural catastrophes was the lowest of the decade. Floods are
the most frequent, followed by earthquakes and then storms.
These events call for a massive coordinated reaction within a
very short notice. This because of their sudden occurrence and
destructive nature. Thatís where disaster relief organizations
come in. These humanitarian organizations are amongst the
frontrunners of helping disaster-struck regions. They often
operate together with and sometimes next to local governments
and the military.
