Manmade and human disasters don’t wait to happen – they are permanently around us. While developed countries generally have the infrastructure necessary to cope with such disasters, underdeveloped countries do not normally have the material or means readily available and certainly not when long-term support is required. This also means, that support gets progressively more difficult, the more remote the stricken areas are located. We are involved in extensive Emergency & Relief operations throughout the world – such as: • Immunization Programmes • Back-to-School Programmes • Repatriation Project • Elections • Manmade disasters • Natural disasters
