With so many humanitarian crisis currently around the world, it makes one wonder about the resources needed, how to get them and the impact on society. What is sad is that it seems that in the poorer area's.... they may not know what to do or how to prep when disasters like these strike:(

Agreed, It is the Poorest sectors that suffer the worst, But they have the strength of Heart to Rebuild with less than they had Before.

A lot of Prepping is Mental rather than Material..
