#actnow. Save Later

Since the year 2000, almost 1 million people have lost their lives to disasters caused by natural hazards. 2 billion people have been affected. 1 trillion dollars in damage was caused. Every one dollar spent on preparing for disasters could save seven dollars in response. Yet, the international community is spending only 1% of aid on disaster preparedness. We can’t prevent disasters, but we can help prevent the human tragedies they cause. Join our campaign, #ActNow, Save Later!
