Dompet Dhuafa is committed to be in the frontline on disaster management efforts. Whether disaster caused by nature like earthquakes, tsunami, eruptions, floods, droughts, hurricane and landslides including fire; or man-made disaster like civil war.

To get understanding the basic role of Dompet Dhuafa in disaster relief efforts, it is necessary to know the three phases of intervention during the disaster.

  • EMERGENCY PHASE. The first intervention will be deployed soon as disaster happened. The distinctive feature of this phase is the aid distribution to survivors such as food and hygiene packages, temporary shelter, and health services including the provision of medicine in the survivor camps.
  • RECOVERY PHASE. During this phase, our role aimed at helping the survivors to immediately recovering from their trauma. Facilitating their daily activities by giving such as trauma healing, establishing temporary schools, and handling services for the disabled and elderly as well as women in pregnancy. This phase also initiate the community involvement to join the voluntary activity, such as helping activities in camp, aid distribution and camp management.
  • RECONSTRUCTION PHASE. As is the last phase of intervention, it marked by the construction of the new permanent facilities such as houses and schools, including the development of permanent infrastructure and public facilities.

All the intervention during the disaster relief phases must be accompanied by development initiatives to decrease the dependence on assistance toward recovery process.
