Before The Storm Hits: Being Prepared For Disaster

Even before a disaster hits, MAP becomes a disaster response center. And much of the preparation necessary for a humanitarian response requires significant advance planning.

When we know a hurricane is forming, or receive news of an earthquake, or see refugees fleeing conflict, MAP springs into action.

This past week, MAP International hosted members from Rotary International District 6920 to pack MAP's signature Disaster Health Kits (DHK). These kits are readied for a disaster that has yet to happen.  Why? 

Because the first question we ask is always, “How can we best help those who may be affected?”

Hurricane Harvey, How You Can Help

A week ago today, Hurricane Harvey slammed into the Texas coast, leaving tens of thousands of children and families homeless and without access to basic health and hygiene items.  MAP International was standing ready and was able to send over a thousand health kits immediately after the storm hit, but it's not enough. We need your help to purchase enough hygiene items to ensure that disease doesn't spread following this devestating storm.
