Being a disaster-prone country, India is highly vulnerable to various types of natural calamities due to its geographical positioning. According to the National Disaster Management Authority, Govt. of India, more than 58.6% of the country’s landmass is prone to earthquakes and over 12% is prone to floods; close to 5,700kms out of the 7,516kms long coastline is prone to cyclones and tsunamis; while 68% of its cultivable area is prone to droughts.
These events call for a massive coordinated reaction within a very short notice because of their sudden occurrence and destructive nature. Humanitarian organizations are amongst the frontrunners of helping disaster-struck regions, often together with and sometimes next to local governments and the military.
