STANDING TOGETHER IN CRISES

Crises after crises have taught us that we are are immensely vulnerable to tragic disasters. Recent crises have also shown that Ghanaians are able to bundle together and respond with a helping hand and the urgently needed warmth and solidarity. Disasters often hit the poor and vulnerable disproportionately and they are the ones who struggle the most to recover and rebuild their lives. Crises response must be everyone’s moral obligation and civic pride.

We cannot stop natural disasters but we can arm ourselves with knowledge: so many lives wouldn’t have to be lost if there was enough disaster preparedness.

BUILDING RESILIENCE. TOGETHER.

The case must be made about proactively preventing and preparing for disasters in the first place. Many of our recent disasters were preventable. But that is a conversation worth having outside the scope of Philanthropy Space­™. Here, we publish interventions deployed by members of Our Commonwealth of Goodwill™ to foster disaster prevention, build resilience and enhance recovery and rebuilding. You too can be a part of this. Sign up today.

Perhaps catastrophe is the natural human environment, and even though we spend a good deal of energy trying to get away from it, we are programmed for survival amid catastrophe.
