First-in, last-out approach

Whenever disaster strikes, natural or man-made, World Vision India generally follows the first-in and last-out approach. Our rapid response team reaches the ground within 24 hours the disaster strikes. Our work begins by assessing the extent of the damage and providing immediate emergency relief. For the first few weeks, we continuously distribute emergency aid and relief to residents affected by the disaster.


Over the following months, we help families stabilize by providing non-food items and livelihood support. We set up child-friendly spaces to provide children with a caring and safe environment.


Our staff remain with the communities until the families have recovered and are ready/able to start life again.


Our Response Team caters to the immediate needs of the affected population and adheres to the industry standards. Camps and the beneficiaries are identified on the basis of need alone.
