Serving mankind is the sole responsibility of a person especially when it comes to vulnerable people. In the past few years, we have seen the constant rise of natural calamities in the number of states of the country. Although, the abroad countries have undergone these disastrous harms in the form of an earthquake, tsunami, etc.
Let’s discuss these calamities in our own country India. Life Rescue Foundation has come forward for providing relief to the people who came under this trap.
Being a disaster-prone country, India is highly vulnerable to various types of natural calamities due to its geographical positioning. According to the National Disaster Management Authority, Govt. of India, more than 58.6% of the country's landmass is prone to earthquakes and over 12% is prone to floods; close to 5,700kms out of the 7,516kms long coastline is prone to cyclones and tsunamis; while 68% of its cultivable area is prone to droughts which is why disaster preparedness is of utmost importance.
Disaster risks in India are further compounded by increasing vulnerabilities related to changing demographics, socio-economic conditions- unplanned urbanization, development within high-risk zones, environmental degradation, climate change, and epidemics and pandemics. All these factors have created a situation where disasters seriously threaten the sustainable development of the country, besides innumerable lives and livelihoods.
Life Rescue Foundation, with its welfare interventions focused on children and their families, responds to the call of humanity in times of such calamities under its Disaster Response program through emergency relief initiatives.
Life Rescue Foundation provides help to the people who undergone this disaster and became vulnerable in the time of need.
