By the numbers
The statistics are staggering. Now more than ever there is an imminent demand for a new disaster relief system that can offer support to frontline workers and community organizations.
This system will build upon the current concept of mutual aid, where non-governmental organizations collaborate to provide assistance to those in need.
The current system
The existing disaster relief system operates on a top-down aid principle, with major NGOs (non-governmental organizations) delivering assistance to disaster-affected areas. Nevertheless, this system can be inefficient and ineffective since it often overlooks the specific, immediate needs of people on the ground.
Challenges and Inefficiencies
As a consequence, aid distribution may not be well-targeted, resulting in a failure to reach those most in need at the critical moments.
Ensuring aid for those who need it most.
By providing support to front line workers and community organizations, the objectives of United Refuge are focused and adaptive to the modern world.
