Disaster Resilience Assistance Programme (DRAP)


The Disaster Resilience Assistance Program (DRAP) is a comprehensive initiative aimed at enhancing the resilience of communities in the face of natural disasters and other crises. This program encompasses both immediate response effects and long-term recovery responses to ensure sustainable rehabilitation and preparedness. ACN has been working in this sector since the beginning.

ACN responds to disasters and focuses on meeting the needs of the most vulnerable survivors of disasters. In response to disasters, ACN reaches wherever and whenever the need is greatest.


Our Disaster Response work includes:

Immediate Response:

In the immediate aftermath of a disaster, DRAP focuses on providing rapid assistance to affected people. This includes emergency relief efforts such as distributing food, water, and shelter materials as well as medical assistance to address urgent needs. Immediate response activities aim to alleviate suffering and ensure the safety and well-being of affected individuals and communities.

– DRAP provides emergency relief assistance post-disaster, including food, water, shelter materials, and medical aid, ensuring the safety and well-being of affected populations.

Recovery Response:

– Livelihood Improvement: DRAP aids in restoring and enhancing livelihoods by offering financial assistance, training, and resources for businesses and agriculture.

– Youth Skill Development and Capacity Building: DRAP focuses on empowering youth through skill development, while also enhancing the capacity of local institutions and individuals to prepare for and respond to disasters through training workshops and community-led initiatives.

– Reconstruction Work: DRAP supports the reconstruction of infrastructure and housing, including resilient and sustainable practices in rebuilding critical facilities like homes, schools, and hospitals.

Overall, the Disaster Resilience Assistance Program takes a holistic approach to disaster management. It addresses immediate needs while also laying the foundation for long-term resilience and sustainable development. By integrating immediate response efforts with comprehensive recovery strategies, DRAP aims to minimize the impact of disasters and build stronger, more resilient communities.
