When a disaster strikes, ADRA New Zealand works closely with the global ADRA network to respond, deploying qualified staff to join the Emergency Response Team (ERT), and to suport further recovery efforts. The Emergency Management programme also continues to build capacity of key high disaster risk partner offices in South-east Asia and the Pacific to respond to emergencies and deliver Community Based Disaster Risk Management (CBDRM) training.
In New Zealand, we work in partnership with various emergency agencies to ensure those affected by disaster receive appropriate assistance in a consistent and timely manner. Activities can include facilitating food provision, accommodation through churches or community facilities, and pyschosocial services. Trained ADRA volunteers are usually deployed to provide these services.Donate Today
