Development Wheel: Disaster Managements

Disaster Management

 Disaster Management Programme

DEW is working in some of Bangladesh's disaster prone areas such as the char land of river Jamuna and Bhramaphutra in greater Mymensingh district. Floods are a very common phenomenon in these areas. Most of the year floods threaten, and damage the livelihoods of the chardwellwers. So itís a key mission of DEW to help the flood victims and rehabilitate them.

DEW provides food, shelter, treatment, medicine, water purifying tablets and other necessary relief and rehabilitation assistance to chardwellers. A number of donors and NGOs, such as Oxfam, WFP,  and the World Fair Trade organization helped DEW to implement its relief and rehabilitation programme.
