Resilience is all about the capacity to withstand the impact of shocks & stresses…
In recent years the world has witnessed interminable succession of disasters: floods, storms, earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, wild fires and epidemics that have claimed hundreds of thousands of lives, caused material losses in the billions of dollars and inflicted a terrible toll on the developing countries particularly the poor communities who live in unsafe conditions. Resources that were meant for development and poverty reduction are in most cases diverted towards disaster response.
BRC Trust which is registered in Zimbabwe, was born out of a vision to reduce vulnerabilities and building the capacity of communities to withstand disaster shocks or hazards. Poverty, lack of knowledge and lack of structures have over the years increased the vulnerabilities of communities while some of the activities of man have also helped to increase the incidence and severity of hazards, a scenario leading to increased risk. The Trust works to reduce poverty, bring awareness about hazards and disaster risks and facilitate the mainstreaming of disaster risk reduction into development programming and setting up of community structures for disaster management thereby building resilience to disaster shocks.
