NGOs and disaster rescue/relief effort: raising, spending and transparency

by on March 1, 2010

Devoting in doing good deeds for people who suffer from nature disasters, NGOs are facing various challenges. To deal with them, NGOs need to be careful and innovative in every process of their rescue/relief effort. Just like what Douste-Blazy and Altman pointed out, “How well they do will depend on the quality of information flowing between poor places and the governments, firms and individuals that want to help” (A spoonful of ingenuity, 2010). NGOs could consider various solutions to bridge the information flow among people and organizations involved in rescue/relief effort to maximize the impact of their effort. This immerging issue paper highlights the challenges faced by NGOs in 1) raising money, 2) managing purchasing and distributing materials, and 3) improving transparency of transactions.
