Humanitarian Response and DRR

Oxfam India saves lives by building the resilience of communities to disasters and conflict

Humanitarian Response and DRR

Oxfam India provides urgent assistance to communities at risk in times of natural disasters and conflict. We ensure that they realise their right to clean water, food, sanitation and other fundamental needs. In particular, we reach out to women, adolescent girls, children, persons with disability and elderly people among these communities.

 

An equally important aspect of our work is disaster risk reduction, or resilience of communities to natural disasters and conflicts. We do this by enhancing the preparedness of our partners on the ground, networks of humanitarian support providers, and of the communities themselves, to cope with sudden natural disasters and conflict.
