Humanitarian Relief Policy

DRNGhana humanitarian relief policy agrees with Government definitions of ”Humanitarian Aid” as efforts to save lives, alleviate suffering and maintain human dignity for the benefit of people in need who are, or are at risk of becoming, affected by armed conflicts, natural disasters or other disaster situations.

 

Our Humanitarian And Relief Policy falls on Three principles that builds on this tradition  (1) Strengthening operational response capacity; (2) Maintaining a robust field presence; and (3) Providing rapid and flexible funding to a diverse range of partners from across the humanitarian landscape.

 

DRNGhana Policy for Humanitarian Relief Action outlines the context in which Government of Ghana and International Humanitarian Agencies operates. The three fundamental principles and core values underpins our humanitarian activities, and the approach we take to address the critical humanitarian needs of the most vulnerable disaster-affected populations in Ghana. Our policy derives from our core mandate, which encompasses the fundamental aims of humanitarian action; saving/preserving lives, alleviating human suffering, and mitigating the economic and social impact of disasters.  It  recognizes  the  links  between  independent  humanitarian  action  and  broader  aid  policies. In the  context of this policy, humanitarian action includes protection and disaster assistance, disaster risk reduction, and efforts to build resilience.

Our authority and mandate flow from the human right entrenched position in the constitution of Ghana Article 12[2]

 

DRNGhana outlines in our policy framework, the core values and strategic goals shaping our work with a National attention orientation with prompt  assistance to alleviate  human  suffering  caused  by natural and  manmade disasters to express our humanitarian concern and tradition for the people of the Ghana.”
