Aid is Still Required
Have you ever wondered what happens in the wake of a disaster after the news cameras stop rolling and the initial emergency aid dries up?
Most disaster funding goes directly to immediate relief, but recovery from major tragedies often takes a decade or longer.
Aid Still Required's two-pronged, “second-responder” approach refocuses the spotlight on regions left behind after natural disasters and human crises through:
- Expansive outreach campaigns that return global awareness to forgotten issues.
- Field programs that foster self-reliance in the most neglected communities.
During and immediately following global disasters, people are moved to help. But after the media and first-responders move on to other issues and new disasters, funding slows to a virtual halt.
With the help of world-renowned personalities, ASR awareness campaigns have reached more than one billion people worldwide through television, radio, print and audio media, and social channels.
Custom-designed Redevelopment Programs
The most overlooked areas in the recovery process are usually the distressed, poverty-stricken areas that were already marginalized and neglected prior to the catastrophe. Aid Still Requiredʼs custom-tailored field programs promote community building and self-determination in the most desperate regions.
