India is prone to disasters and vulnerable to natural calamities based on its geographical positioning, and the disaster types include earthquakes, floods, tsunami, cyclones, pandemics, epidemics, and other emergency conditions. We must give utmost importance to disaster preparedness as our major cultivable land is prone to disasters. The reasons for disasters are changing demographics, unplanned urbanization, environmental degradation, high-risk zones, and other socio-economic conditions.
These disasters impact numerous livelihoods and lives if we are not prepared to manage them effectively. Being Odia Foundation focuses on addressing and responding to disasters on time as an act of humanity. Volunteers are required to rescue or save people during disasters and emergency times. We take the responsibility to prepare, respond, and rebuild people’s lives by facilitating quality education, livelihood, and healthcare after a disaster.
