Disasters occur throughout the world, each more destructive than the other. People lose their loved ones, homes, livelihoods and most importantly their resilience, leaving them emotionally weak and unable to bounce back from the catastrophe they have experienced.
In most cases; it is not the disaster itself that causes the travesty. Other factors like unplanned and unsafe construction, lack of early warning systems, lack of knowledge on safety measures to be taken before and after the calamity etc. are the real causes for destruction and loss of life. Natural calamities re beyond our control, there in nothing we can do stop them from occurring, but we can surely minimise the damage caused by taking appropriate steps before and after the event.
