  • People with disabilities (visual, physical, medical, sensory or cognitive) are most vulnerable during and after the disasters. It is estimated that there are about 70 million people in India who suffer with many disabilities and are rarely mainstreamed in the process of Disaster Risk Reduction. It is also worth noting that 80 percent of them are poor and stay in rural and urban slums. They are most disempowered, and the most in need, they are present in every community of India as well as in all populations targeted for capacity building for disasters.
  • Saritsa Foundation has recognized the need to empower persons with disability since year 2000. UNISDR , World Bank and other organizations are now advocating the importance to mainstream disabled people in the process of DRR which was neglected in past. Their participation is crucial to support NGOS like Saritsa Foundation to ensure equal access to Life Saving Education to disabled people to build their capacity to comprehend the risk and how to prepare for it, how to be partners in early warning process, evacuation and relief as well as rehabilitation.
  • Particularly in rural areas and temporary hutments as well as slums in urban areas? How the family members and the community members have to take care of their concerns with inclusive policies and plans? Basic needs of vulnerable populations should be seen as the equivalent of the general population; however, there may be different requirements in fulfilling their needs. Saritsa Foundation has identified that inclusion of vulnerable groups in preparedness should be also part of planning.
  • It has prepared 9750 persons with disability in past 14 years in 18 states of India. In reality, this aspect has to be taken care at local level which Saritsa Foundation sensitizes.
