Our previous disaster responses
We've responded to nearly 20 disasters in India since 1999, from the 2001 Gujarat earthquake (584 homes built), to the 2004 Asian Tsunami (13,081 homes built and repaired) and more recently the Assam floods of 2017 where we distributed over 4,000 humanitarian aid kids. The below are case studies of specific responses to previous earthquakes.
Among the largest Habitat for Humanity operations in the Asia-Pacific region, our team in India now works across 20 states and has helped hundreds of thousands gain access to decent shelter as well as rebuild their lives following natural disasters.
Our India office has to date been responsible for:
- Building 174,771 homes
