Not only do conflicts and natural disasters claim many victims, they also destroy houses, streets, schools, water supply systems or hospitals. Harvests fail and agriculture, small businesses and markets come to a standstill. This is why it is so important for initial emergency relief to be followed immediately by the rapid and sustainable reconstruction of vital infrastructure and economic bases so that people can again live independently and earn their livelihood. The affected people receive support in the form of training courses, building materials, seeds and tools.
