Natural disasters can have devastating impacts on communities. Landslides, earthquakes, floods, tsunamis and bush fires are some examples of the types of natural occurrences which trigger emergency relief responses. Other types of crises such as civil war and conflict can also lead to emergency situations where many people are displaced and need urgent assistance.
ABM supports our partners not only by providing emergency relief aid, but also by helping to prepare them for emergency situations and educating them on methods to mitigate the effects of climate change.
