Nexus Students Learn About Disaster Relief Efforts

By on Dec 10, 2018 in Blog |

Nexus and CSMS students were given an inspirational lecture today by Tom Henderson, an expert in disaster relief with decades of experience in zones of natural and man-made disaster.

Our students gained an insight into how living conditions for the displaced population can change radically from the initial post-crisis phase to the long term redevelopment phase.

Mr Henderson explained how aid agencies work to establish emergency shelters for people caught in disaster zones before moving through a number of development stages using natural resources to build transitional shelters before national infrastructure can be rebuilt.

The lecture was a fascinating insight into disaster relief efforts and we are very grateful to Tom for giving up his time today.
