Sungi’s response to disasters is natural because of being a deep-rooted national organization having strong ties with its communities. It continuously makes efforts for effective disaster response since 1996 floods in the northern parts of the country. Sungi believes that disasters impact differently on women, men, girls, boys and other disadvantage groups. Sungi’s experience in emergency response revealed that in disasters and conflicts, women and children are being affected the most. It is also evident that emergency scenarios create opportunities for women to redress gender disparities through change agents. Consequently, having distinct vulnerabilities, capacities and needs requires different actions. Sungi keeps gender consideration at priority in emergency responses and works to convert threats into opportunities by following HAP principles and guidelines. Sungi has been a leading organization during the Earthquake 2005 and floods 2010 in emergency response, early recovery and rehabilitation. Sungi extensively works with the national and provincial authorities to build their capacity and disaster response planning across the country.
