In the wake of a disaster, whether of natural causes or man-made, it is essential that help and relief arrive as quickly as possible. This is important to ensure that survivors do not endure prolonged suffering and also to prevent outbreak of diseases due to unmanaged contamination.
MAA International leverages the skills, resources, networks and geographical coverage of field offices and local NGO partners for effective and efficient assistance in delivering humanitarian aid during disasters.
MAA's operational ethos is based on a holistic humanitarian and development assistance cycle of Relief, Recovery, and Rebuild (RRR) response. At the onset of disaster, MAA works to provide immediate emergency assistance (Relief), then rehabilitate broken lives (Recovery), and eventually invest in long term development (Rebuild) of the community.
