Summary

An emergency is defined as an urgent event during which a series of occurrences caused human beings to suffer, or be put in imminent danger, in a markedly unusual or abnormal way.1 Disaster relief organizations are organizations dedicated to meeting the immediate needs of regions affected by natural disasters, or other humanitarian crises.2 In 2017 alone, the Emergency Events Database (EM-DAT) reported 318 natural disasters worldwide.3 The World Bank estimates that natural disasters result in $520 billion in annual consumption, and impoverishes 26 million people each year.4 Show References
