Nepal

After the two devastating earthquakes which hit Nepal in April and May of 2015, RedR worked to help those affected rebuild their homes, infrastructure and livelihoods - and build them back better, reducing the impact of future disasters.

Philippines

Typhoon Haiyan, the fourth most intense ever recorded, wreaked havoc across the Philippines’ central islands. It killed more than 7,400 people, and injured more than 20,000. RedR trained affected communities to 'build back better', mitigating the impact of future disasters.

Bangladesh

On 24th April 2013, the Rana Plaza garment factory, at Savar, central Bangladesh, collapsed, trapping 5,000 people under rubble. Untrained volunteers from the community risked their lives and saved 3,862 people. One of them reached out to RedR, requesting training so that he and his fellow volunteers would be better prepared in future.

Pakistan

RedR established a permanent presence in Pakistan in the wake of the floods of 2010. Since then, we've been working with schools and community organisations in high-risk areas to ensure that children know how to evacuate safely and administer first aid.
