When people are supported before, during and after a disaster, they are more likely to survive and recover.
That’s why we work with communities to protect lives, provide emergency shelter kits and food supplies, and rebuild livelihoods. We have disaster responses and disaster risk reduction projects in countries including Fiji, Lebanon and Philippines.
“Six members of our family lost their homes and properties,” Tammy says. “But we’re all still alive.”
The black summer bushfires dealt a staggering blow to Tammy and her family. But almost immediately, help started flooding in.
“Support was coming through in forms of money or in forms of fuel or food,” says Tammy.
“The support from ADRA has been great,” Tammy says. With the immediate cash grant from ADRA, Tammy was able to purchase fuel for their generator, ensuring they didn’t lose the scarce, basic food items they could source. It also meant they could fill their cars with fuel and return to their property in order to keep the stock they had left alive.
“The support and the help has been muchly appreciated and very much needed. Thank you.”
