In the aftermath of any disaster, a crucial question surfaces: how do we move beyond immediate aid and build lasting resilience? MAA has the answer - the Triple R Approach: Relief, Recovery, Rebuild. For over 30 years, we've helped communities worldwide transition from urgent needs to sustainable futures.
The Triple R Framework:
Relief: We're first responders, delivering life-saving supplies and support within critical hours. Think food, water, shelter, and medical aid.
Recovery: As the dust settles, we focus on rebuilding lives. This means repairing infrastructure, restoring livelihoods, and providing mental health support.
Rebuild: Our commitment extends beyond the disaster. We build resilient communities with earthquake-proof homes, climate-sensitive water systems, and sustainable economic opportunities.
