By Irina Vicente, Portuguese Red Cross
What advice would you give to others in dealing with impacts of possible crisis? (natural disasters, manmade disasters, health crisis, economic crisis, etc.)
Red Cross has a history of helping the communities dealing with the impact of a crisis. The grassroots level that Red Cross works helps to better understand the vulnerabilities and needs of the communities, but also, how important is to build capacities within the communities to deal with the challenges of a changing world.
Sharing experiences, information and spreading knowledge is very important, but to prevent the impact of a crisis the work should be done for, with and by the communities.
Empowering the community is a way of saving lifes, changing minds.
