Recovery & Preparedness

We think present. We plan for the future.

When a hurricane or earthquake hits a community, the immediate concern is saving lives. As the initial emergency subsides, the challenges become far greater. How can communities, governments, and humanitarians support long-term recovery and strengthen the resilience of individuals and communities?

From the start of our work with a community affected by crisis, our teams think strategically – together with the community – about how to support recovery and develop plans to reduce the risks of future disasters.

Whether it’s our disaster risk reduction programs, child protection models, or hygiene promotion campaigns, we build sustainable, practical, and realistic solutions that communities can believe in and embrace for the long term — solutions that tap into their inner reserves of strength and resilience to allow them to take back ownership of their lives and futures. From the Kakuma refugee camp in Kenya to the hurricane-devastated island of Dominica, we’ve seen it happen time and time again across the world.
