OUR THEMES

THEME

DISASTER RELIEF

Disaster relief is the process of responding to catastrophic events and providing humanitarian aid to suffering persons/communities. Disaster happens suddenly, and is often the cause of suffering and loss. Disasters might include hurricanes, earthquakes, tsunamis, conflicts, and famines. 

It is estimated that thirty million people are affected by natural disasters every year. When disaster strikes, basic needs (e.g. clean water, sanitation systems, etc.) are often unavailable, contributing to the spread of disease. Furthermore, disasters often disrupt channels of communication. Power, Internet and phones can go down or be overwhelmend by demand. This damage makes it hard for people to communicate with the authorities and relief efforts. In the month of October, Kutoa will support our partners who are actively participating in life-saving relief efforts.
