Humanitarian Response

CASA is one of the early responders to major disasters in the country. We reach the most remote parts of the disaster-hit regions where relief might not reach on time due to connectivity or other barriers. CASA’s immediate relief operation makes sure that basic necessities for survival like food, dry ration, clean drinking water, temporary shelters and other utilities reach people at the time of disaster. CASA also believes in rehabilitating and building capacities (subject to fund availability) of the communities, helping them to start life afresh.

Community participation in disaster preparedness is another area which, we believe, is most necessary. CASA conducts disaster management and training exercises for the volunteers and communities to help reduce risks during disasters, in disaster prone areas.
