About Disaster Response
Supporting families affected by disasters requires immediate action; however, the need for quality shelter and housing remains for months and years.
Habitat’s response to disasters
- We focus on the housing needs that arise from natural disasters and humanitarian emergency conflicts.
- We use a number of integrated approaches that revolve around sustainable shelter and housing solutions.
- We offer expertise in technical information; program design and implementation; and disaster response policies, protocols and procedures.
- We also provide support and informational resources for disaster risk reduction ― helping communities in disaster-prone areas protect themselves against future threats.
More than 100,000 families worldwide have been assisted after disasters and conflicts
By giving the communities the means to rebuild, Habitat has been able to support, empower and work with families in building recovery shelter and housing solutions.
