Humanitarian Organizations: Providing Relief in Disastrous Situations

Posted by Saeed129 on July 21st, 2014

Humanitarian organizations work round the clock to provide relief to suffering human population. In war-torn countries such as Pakistan, relief services are important to the suffering lot who need immediate medical care, first aid, food, and any important assistance that can alleviate their suffering. For such reasons, humanitarian organizations such as Edhi Foundation were established. Such organizations often depend on donations from other organizations and individuals to carry out their duties. Without sadaqa from concerned individuals and groups, the organizations cannot be able to provide various emergency services to communities and individuals afflicted.

With that idea in mind, it becomes clear that humanitarian work is everyone’s concern. Individuals and communities need to team up together to support humanitarian organizations that are engaged in providing ambulances in emergencies, preserving and burial or unclaimed bodies, and providing relief food to communities and individuals affected by disaster. While mainstream humanitarian organizations may receive donor funding from other organizations, small and medium size humanitarian groups find it difficult to operate without enough funds yet they play a leading role in relief services.

To achieve their goals effectively, individuals and communities need to team up and contribute towards relief services. That is why people from all corners of the world are urged to contribute Zakat both online and offline to provide relief to suffering victims. Some of the important services offered by humanitarian organizations include:

  • Ambulance services: these are important in situations where victims have to be taken to other medical facilities for further medical attention. The ambulances are mainly donated by world-class humanitarian organizations to help in disaster-stricken areas.

  • Volunteer work: This is important as willing citizens volunteer to donate blood, food, and clothing to affected communities. Volunteer work is also important in communities stricken by famine and other natural calamities.

  • Rehabilitation centers: People affected by disasters often undergo traumatic experiences, which require counseling from experts. A reliable humanitarian organization should have a rehab center where disaster victims are counseled qualified personnel.

  • Maternity centers: These are important for expecting women and their children in disaster prone areas. They offer basic prenatal and mother/child health services in such areas.

With these services in their list and more, it is easy to recognize the work done by Humanitarian organizations. Since disasters do not give warnings of their happenings, the organizations are always ready with necessary requirements to handle each disastrous situation. One of the much-needed requirements is finances, which they use to buy fuel for the ambulances, medical supplies and other necessities for the emergencies.
