The Disaster Management Program (DMP) is a comprehensive program that immediately responds to disasters in Pakistan and Afghanistan. Assistance is provided through relief and rehabilitation activities. DMP also engages in disaster risk reduction activities which help prepare communities to cope with future disasters and to evaluate their risks and vulnerabilities.
DMP projects emphasize community participation, maintain beneficiary dignity, and seek sustainable solutions for the affected communities. Depending on the disaster and the community’s needs, DMP provides relief items including shelter kits, hygiene kits, food packages, and non-food items in order to assist families overcome the initial challenges and meet basic needs. As a community’s needs change and move toward recovery, DMP focuses on long-term solutions for rebuilding lives and livelihoods.
