Climate change is devastating both the environment and people’s lives. As more and more natural disasters are occurring around the world, the people who are sadly suffering the most are the poorest and the most vulnerable in society.
Here at Islamic Relief, we know that to support communities in need, we have to help them become resilient against the effects of climate change. We must work to prevent disaster as much as possible. That’s why we run a range of programmes helping communities to prepare for and recover from natural disasters.
Sadly, once a disaster has hit, recovery can sometimes take years, if not decades. This is why disaster-preparation and resilience is essential. We, therefore, work to empower and prepare communities, providing a range of support including training, specialist tools and equipment and innovative technology to map water sources.
