Relief Programmes


India’s geo-climatic conditions, its high degree of socio-economic vulnerability, makes it one of the most disaster prone countries in the world. It is highly vulnerable to floods, droughts, cyclones, earthquakes, landslides, avalanches and forest fires. MSET in its pursuit of promoting strategic giving and supporting vulnerable communities has constructively engaged with donors, civil society and government authorities to respond to disasters.

MSET response during disasters:

  • Designing and managing relief and rehabilitation strategies / operations.

  • Enabling affected communities to undergo livelihood training programmes.

  • Provide disaster management education to improve the resilience of the communities and their preparedness to handle disasters.

  • Capacity building to deliver desired project outcomes.

  • Helping create awareness among communities about government schemes to compensate victims for damages and facilitate community access to those benefits.

MSET intervention during the following disasters:

  • Chennai Flood (2015)

  • Vardah Cyclone (2016)

MSET Disaster Relief Fund:

MSET Disaster Relief Fund is an attempt to be more prompt and preemptive in the wake of any disaster and extend immediate support to affected communities. The idea is to be more responsive and prepared, by mobilising resources in advance. So that the available funds can be utilised with immediate effect on the ground, thereby curtailing the risk of losing time and energy in fundraising post disaster. The key objective is to make financial resources available for immediate relief within 24 hours of any disaster and act as one of the first responders on the ground.
