The role of the local church in disaster management

A paper outlining the role of the local church in disaster management

2014 Available in English

The local church has a significant role to play in disaster management.

Tulo Raistrick outlines where the church can give greater value when disaster hits, by being:

  • a facilitator of community action
  • a connector with the wider world
  • an advocate on behalf of the poor and the marginalised
  • a provider of relational care and support
  • a community peace-builder and force for cohesion
  • an influencer and shaper of values
  • a provider of resources
  • an immediate responder to sudden onset disasters
