DISASTER MANAGEMENT & EMERGENCY RELIEF
Disaster Management and relief is carried out by the organization in coordination with the 72 catholic centres spread across the state of Nagaland. At the time of a disaster, a need assessment is done at the local level by the centre in charges and are forwarded to the organization for planning relief and reconstruction intervention with support from local, national and international agencies. The organization responds with emergency support in terms of food, clothing and other essential items. Reconstruction and rehabilitation programmes are undertaken after detailed study and planning.
