The best way for a person or their family to get through disasters is to plan in advance for them.
We cannot stop natural disasters but we can arm ourselves with knowledge: so many lives wouldn't have to be lost if there
was enough disaster preparedness.
After a natural disaster, safe drinking water is a priority. Humans can live longer without food than water, so communication
about clean water is essential to help avoid the risk of cholera, dysentery, malnutrition, famine, and death.
