Disaster Response

Disasters impact on entire communities. The immediate effects include loss of life and damage to property and infrastructure, with the survivors (some of whom may have been injured in the disaster) traumatized by the experience, uncertain of the future and less able to provide for their own welfare, at least in the short term. More than likely, they are left without adequate shelter, food, water and other necessities to sustain life.

The work performed by the Disaster Response department is exactly as the name implies. Any and all sort of disasters that happen, JWF Disaster Management team tries to help those people suffering from those disasters to recover and stand on their own two feet again. Bangladesh has a poor disaster management system, with the country’s current flood and river erosion being only some of the examples which show lacking the concerned authorities are in preparing for such adversities when they strike. With the world changing at a dramatic pace the number of people becoming vulnerable to disasters or are forced to cope with acts of violence, financial crises and growing uncertainty, often without adequate support from their governments is rising. With new challenges to humanitarian coordination, concerns over standards and accountability, more capable states and National Societies exercising leadership over humanitarian response and presenting new opportunities to mobilize the collective resources in non-traditional ways, the JWF tries to learn, adapt, innovate, and lead to ensure that we remain relevant and achieve greater impact with our humanitarian work. Cries of the disaster stricken regions for food, hygiene, medicine, health personnel and other basic necessities used for handling such natural disasters are always falling on deaf ears. JWF’ team tries not only to help people to the best of their abilities by providing them with the necessities but also tries to direct & manage the aftermath of such disasters in order for people to not fall into panic and give them the opportunity to salvage themselves and lead a more resilient life.

Whenever disasters strike, they do not discriminate or differentiate - they cause havoc and distress. They strike countries' rich and poor affect both men and women, old and young and cause destruction leaving behind a trail of devastation and irreparable losses. When these hazards strike, the JWF disaster response team is the first to react, irrespective of their profession, status, cast or culture. JWF always moves forward with the noble intention to assist the disaster affected people, whether the help be through donation campaign, raising awareness for help, onsite supervision to help the affected people or simply delivering the needed commodities to the victims of disasters. We also in the future plan to hold Survival Learning Camps for allow people on site of the areas affected by disaster to learn about the various techniques or knowledge as what to do or what not to do when facing a disaster, which in turn we believe would help them in any such future occurrence.
