Disaster Risk Reduction

To safeguard the well-being and opportunities of children, Help a Child supports communities to be resilient and cope with crises. An important aspect is Disaster Risk Reduction.
Disaster Risk Reduction means that exposure to hazards and disasters in the community is being reduced. Help a Child supports communities to map risks and vulnerabilities. We improve their preparedness and use the strengths of the community to minimize the impact of hazards turning into a disaster. That is what Disaster Risk Reduction is all about!
