After natural disasters people in the affected regions are often left with nothing. Earthquakes, flooding or storms quickly destroy whole regions and livelihoods. In the event of armed conflicts, the civil population suffers above all from violence and lack of food and medical care. Immediate aid and emergency relief try to mitigate the consequences of crises.
The consequences of disasters and armed conflicts destroy the livelihoods of a great number of people. They destroy whole regions and with them basic food resources as well as health, hygiene and transport infrastructures. Every minute counts ‑ that is why the emergency relief of the GRC runs like a clockwork.
