Project Description: 

A lack of knowledge and insufficient disaster preparedness often hinder immediate rescue and support missions after a severe event. In order to increase people's chances of survival and decrease their vulnerability in case of an emergency, HOPE'87 procured special rescue kit boxes to be distributed in risk areas. These boxes consist of fire proof jackets, blankets, helmets, stretchers, hammers, knifes, saws, axes, wrenches, jags, portable oxygen bars, torches, pliers, pillows, rain coats, canvas, rope and other tools and materials. The rescue kit boxes were distributed to four local partner NGOs, which are active in the coastal belt and the disaster prone areas of Bangladesh
