Every year, natural disasters, war and civil unrest displace millions of people around the world from their homes.
Habitat has over 40 years of experience in community-based development, and takes a partnership approach to disaster response.
When a disaster strikes, the loss of home leaves families very vulnerable. Habitat works to rebuild communities, moving them from ruin to recovery through a ‘Pathways to Permanence’ approach.
As part of One World Festival 2020, Habitat & Queens University Belfast held 'It's A Disaster"; a webinar which discussed humanitarian disasters, disaster relief and mitigation with leaders from Habitat for Humanity's global disaster response programme, Mario Flores & James Schell.
