What we do
Like many international organisations involved in the delivery of medical and humanitarian aid to vulnerable communities, MERCY Malaysia has been actively involved in providing emergency assistance to affected populations.
MERCY Malaysia began implementing its key domestic and international projects and programmes by utilising a new approach, Total Disaster Risk Management (TDRM) in 2005.
The TDRM approach is in line with the Hyogo Framework for Action (HFA), which was adopted by 168 countries at the 2005 UN World Conference on Disaster Reduction in Kobe, Japan.
The HFA outlined five main action points, among them the importance of risk education as an important element to help reduce vulnerabilities.
TDRM applies disaster risk management to all the phases of the disaster management cycle – emergency response, recovery, prevention/mitigation and preparedness/readiness.
MERCY Malaysia’s commitment to TDRM highlights the importance of discovering a clearer understanding and response to disaster management while also addressing the root causes and underlying factors that lead to disasters.
