The scale and frequency of natural and man-made disasters around the world continues to rise, yet humanitarian aid resources are in shorter supply. By helping to boost the resilience of disaster-struck communities, RedR's new campaign hopes to find a longer term solution.
RedR is delighted to announce that New Civil Engineer magazine has become a RedR Patron. Since RedRs formation over 30 years ago NCE has been a valued supporter of RedRs work and this represents an exciting new step for the partnership between the two.
A report released today marks the beginning of a new era of collaboration between the private sector, NGOs and governments in humanitarian action. The UK engineering and construction sector, along with disaster relief charity RedR, are taking a leading role in this new future.
One year after RedR opened its doors in Nairobi, Kenya, more than 1,000 national and international aid workers have been equipped with essential humanitarian skills, ensuring vital support continues to reach disaster-hit communities in some of the worlds most challenging locations.
The safety of aid workers is integral to ensuring reliable and effective support for the 62 million people who need humanitarian assistance around the globe, RedR says ahead of World Humanitarian Day on 19 August, as we call for further investment in security training for NGO field staff.
