Disaster Relief

With a dual focus on rapid response and extensive long-term rehabilitation, Amma is committed to a holistic approach to disaster relief, supporting survivors long after the spotlight has faded away. Our provision of long-term aid has carried thousands through the darkest periods of their lives into the light of a hopeful future.

“Nature, human beings, everything is disturbed both inside and outside. It is as if Nature is surrounded by people holding her at gunpoint. Let us all pray that everyone may live in peace and there be no more tragedies.”

- Amma


Why it Matters

Natural disasters will increase 40% from 2015 to 2030
As global temperatures rise, natural diasters are more frequent, severe and increasing at an alarming rate. Often these severe diasters are occuring in communites or areas that are unable to prepare for them and therefore the least able to recover.
