The key role of NGOs in bringing disaster relief in Nepal

There are NGOs in Nepal with long-standing disaster prevention programmes, well-positioned to help coordinate relief. 15.9K Total Views The relief operation is underway in Nepal – under extremely difficult circumstances. Non-governmental organisations play a crucial role in disaster management in the 21st century – and this will be especially true in Nepal following the devastating recent earthquake. In contrast to the donations of national governments that are often tied to political favours and strategic considerations, NGOs are less susceptible to political imperatives and seem to distribute aid according to sincere humanitarian needs. Moreover, NGOs such as the Red Cross and Red Crescent have long-standing disaster-prevention programmes that cover a large range of natural hazards. This places them in an ideal position to help vulnerable countries such as Nepal.
