Through decades of poor public policy and a lack of concern by central governments for the needs of socially excluded communities, many Salvadorans face the yearly dangers brought on by heavy rains, storms, hurricanes, and earthquakes. Given this, SalvAide works to coordinate emergency and disaster relief efforts with its Salvadoran partners when such crises arise. But, we also work with our partners on risk reduction and diaster mitigation efforts that build on healthy public policy.

We know that much of the human devastation from diasters is preventable through organized community-level measures in coordination with effective state institutions. This is why we support our partners' advocacy efforts to establish a national emergency response and disaster mitigation plan.
