REBUILDING A MORE DURABLE INFRASTRUCTURE

Recovering after a natural disaster is a lengthy and difficult process. We strive to assist communities in rebuilding their homes and livelihoods by helping arrange and finance rebuilding efforts. When rebuilding, we aim to create an infrastructure that is more durable when faced with natural disasters. We also help communities obtain the services and support made available by the government.

Helping those who cannot afford to help themselves

Friendship begins by assessing the needs and existing resources readily available in the community. This enables us to prioritise and address the most urgent needs. It also promotes leadership from within the community, helps focus the collective effort and gives a voice to those who may feel they have none at a time when it is most needed.
