Disaster Relief, Rehabilitation & Prevention
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.
CEDAR Approach on Relief and Rehabilitation
Relief works require responses appropriate to the various, interlinked, phases of disaster. ‘Long term service’ and ‘total commitment’ are also required of the relief workers in dealing with future events. Click here to read the principles CEDAR.
