Role of NGOs in Disaster Management

Anupreeta Chatterjee [3]

Abstract: Non - Governmental Organizations play a significant role in managing any disaster. They are not just responsible for conducting donation drives but they are also trying to re - emphasize on community support. Such community building exercises by the NGOs are not just focusing on taking donations/food supplies from different social groups across the country. But these activities rekindle the humanitarian values and uplift our spirits to connect with fellow humans at a deeper level. Disasters maybe man - made or natural but it is the only time when we truly understand the value of unity. As a nation, we shall face them and community participation is one of the essential components that most NGOs work on. Thus, this paper will try to assess different levels of community participation reinforced by NGOs in - case of handling such 'uncanny' calamities and disasters. Also, the researcher aims to narrate her experiences as a social worker and highlight how she managed to raise funds for such disasters.
