EMERGENCIES

4 stages of Emergency Response:

NEED ASSESSMENT

Conduct a needs assessment which will determine the extent of the disaster, what the people affected need in the short and long term, and who exactly HCI can help.

EMERGENCY RELIEF

Delivery of basic necessities, such as food and water, hygiene items, and temporary/transitional shelter setups (e.g. tents). Basic health assistance and medical supplies are also delivered.

EARLY RECOVERY

The second phase of relief is where efforts are underway to (re)build permanent housing and provide cash assistance so that families can return to their homes, and children can return to school.

COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT

This stage involves investing in restoring basic health and water systems, facilitating income-generation opportunities, and providing access to education for children.

In general, HCI’s admin fee on an annual basis is 10-15%. In emergency crisis situations, we may declare 0% admin.

No we cannot do this. We also cannot accept a list of people to help. This is against CRA rules and regulations for how a charity should operate.

We first begin with our needs assessment and start phase one as quickly as possible. Funds are sent based on the reports we receive from the ground. Our intention is not to hold on to funds, but rather to make sure that before they are sent, there is a proper plan for distribution in place. For this reason, we cannot give an exact timeline, but we try to get the funds out as soon as possible.

We believe in working hand in hand with the local community. For this reason, we may often rely on the expertise of a local NGO to conduct the needs assessment, provide us with feedback, and carry out the distribution on our behalf. These are NGO’s that are well established and have a track record for implementing humanitarian aid projects.

HCI regularly publishes impact reports and provides them to the public. Also, donors to a specific campaign are sent these reports directly once they’re made available. You can visit humanconcern.org/reports for reports on Ramadan, Qurbani, Winter relief, and other emergencies.
