Disaster Relief, Rehabilitation & Prevention

relief-intro

The ‘R’ in CEDAR stands for relief. Poverty makes people vulnerable to disasters and disasters in turn keep people in poverty, wiping out the few resources they have. CEDAR’s relief work is more than giving relief materials, we restore hope for the hopeless with God’s love and compassion demonstrated through the work of our Christian partners. We have also set up the ‘Emergency Relief and Disaster Preparedness Fund’ to respond to immediate needs, and support disaster mitigation in poor nations always being hit by disasters to reduce the amount of devastation.
