Disaster Relief

[ Click images on the left to know more about HOPE worldwide's relief work in those regions ]

South Asia has been ravaged by various disasters in the last decade. There have been innumerable lives lost and families separated because of the disasters. Millions of dollars worth of livelihood and equipment destroyed in a single instant. A lingering fear and despair haunts the place years after the event. The floods in Bangladesh and Bihar, India, the tsunami in south India, the earthquake in Bhuj, India and Pakistan and others have left haunting memories for the residents. They are left with nothing to rebuild their lives.

The people in these areas suffer not only physical but also emotional distress as well. They have seen their families and neighbors, perhaps even heard them calling for help when they could do nothing. They are left with desperation, as they are expected to start over again with nothing in their hands.

HOPE foundation and HOPE worldwide, in their commitment to help serve the underprivileged, have not failed to be at the sides of those who have suffered and lived through tremendous pain. We have been on site in areas like Pakistan, Bhuj, Bangladesh and Tamil Nadu in India to give immediate relief to the survivors after the disasters.

However, the most prevailing need in most of these places is not just relief work after the disaster but development. Sustained development is needed to educate the people, not just on how to overcome similar disasters, but to open new avenues for them. HOPE foundation and HOPE worldwide not only offers immediate relief to the survivors but also for as much as it is possible, stays back at the site to help the residents rebuild their lives from the pieces long after other non-profit organizations have left. We want to let them know that there is still hope and that they have not been left to face their fears by themselves.

We have and are helping rebuild the lives of people at the following locations:

1. Earthquake in Pakistan
2. Cyclone in Bangladesh
3. Earthquake in Bhuj
4. Tsunami in South India
5. Cyclone in Orissa
6. Floods in Bihar
7. Cyclone in Myanmar
