When a disaster occurs, it can cause urgent health emergencies. This is why Relief is an essential part to organizing immediate local responses. Africa's Children's Fund responds. We work with local governments to determine what is needed where and by whom. It is imperative that relief strategies are designed to ensure that resources are delivered in the appropriate amount to the right location. We send life-saving shipments of food, water and medical supplies to the affected areas.
Emergencies can leave entire communities in urgent need of assistance to survive and recover. They often threaten efforts to improve a community’s health and advance its social and economic well-being. Rapid assistance can save lives during an emergency. That’s why we assist in initial response services aimed at meeting the critical needs of disaster victims, such as collecting and distributing donated goods and providing social services to individuals and families in need.
