Disaster Fund

There are few humanitarian organisations that respond as quickly to disasters as the Red Cross. When a crisis strikes, speed is essential and since our volunteers and staff are recruited and trained locally, we are usually the first organisation at the scene. However blankets, tent, medicines, food, water, sanitation are all needed immediately, not within a week but within hours of the tragedy happening. This is why we introduced the disaster fund in 2001, to ensure we can react to any situation in the quickest possible time
