Humanitarian Assistance

A humanitarian emergency is generally defined as a large-scale “event or series of events that represents a critical threat to the health, safety, security or wellbeing of a community”. The elements of a humanitarian emergency are

  • a proximate cause/event, and
  • a vulnerable population that is

Humanitarian emergencies can have a wide range of causes of natural hazards for example earthquakes, floods, and tsunamis to pandemics. To provide relief to the communities during disasters HRDN implemented various projects related to thematic areas.

  • Raising awareness during disasters and providing its support through different response initiatives
  • Arranging capacity-building customized workshops for concerned professionals to deal with affected communities
  • Designing and conducting research studies and assessments
  • Designing and implementing activities and projects
