Nepal: Risk-reduction by Radio

If you turn on your radio in the mountain villages of Nepal, you can hear people singing about natural disasters.
 
Songs and radio drama have taught 80,000 villagers in the remote mountain areas of Nepal about floods, mudslides and earthquakes.
 
Each year these disasters destroy harvests, block paths, or in the worst cases, take the lives of residents of these mountainous areas. The short melodic jingles that play on the radio are easy to remember and remind people about good risk-reduction practices.

Kim Hartzner: "A stitch in time saves nine"

"It is a normal human response to help when we see the huge devastation that results when a tsunami, drought, earthquake or flood strikes. But this devastation can be minimized by prevention measures.
 
So if small amounts of money can make a big difference through prevention, why do we wait until disaster strikes before we act with empathy and generosity?
 
In a quote for the news agency Reuters, the EU Commissioner for humanitarian aid, Kristalina Georgieva, suggests that prevention is simply not as quick to grab your attention.
 

Mission East: ”Reprehensible that the money is not shared out”

The Danish government has decided to send 63 million DKK to the Horn of Africa. Mission East fears that this will affect the North Korean people whose great needs will be given low priority and consequently forgotten.

Terrible photos of malnourished people from the Horn of Africa fill the media these days, there is a great need for help. But the need is great in Asia, too, where two thirds of the world’s poor still live.
