Bridging the gap

Natural disasters and civil conflict are the most common causes of acute crises around the world. Earthquakes, floods, droughts, protracted civil violence bring with them not only immediate death, injuries and losses of livelihoods but they bring about serious knock on effects such as migration, famines, chronic instability, small arms proliferation and unemployment. All of these are both underpinned and aggravated by the lack of basic social services such as health and education, pushing the communities further down the spiral of hopelessness.
