How does World Vision ensure it is prepared when a disaster strikes?

Having a Disaster Response Fund ready to use, the global pre-positioning resource network ensures we can respond rapidly to any disaster, with pre-positioned supplies (seven warehouses strategically-located worldwide), preparedness plans and trained staff worldwide.

Community development programmes include training in disaster preparation and prevention (e.g. first aid, how to respond to a disaster, improving the construction of buildings, developing early warning systems, and mapping potential threats and vulnerable areas).
