Effective logistics = effective disaster management

Last year, 411 million people were affected by natural disasters (CRED, 2016).

How can we minimise this impact?

By better disaster preparedness and response, which depends upon effective logistics management. For every dollar raised for disaster relief, 80 cents is spent on emergency logistics. With your support, we can help ensure this money is spent wisely. And not wasted.
