DISASTER RISK REDUCTION & RESPONSE

Rescue Global works hard to live in a world where disasters are less impactful and are responded to by national or regional resources. Our approach works to alleviate the negative effects that an international response can sometimes have, such as disempowering a country in the long term, whilst providing much needed relief in the short term
