Here are the great words of appreciation from eminent people who love HAI
HAI’s focus on enabling the grassroots NGOs towards disaster risk reduction and mitigation is a unique one. It is commendable that HAI is working towards the national agenda of community level preparedness and their resilience building to be able to respond to a bigger disaster

HAI has been playing a constructive and effective role in mitigating disasters facing the communities. It’s efforts to initiate processes, that ensure greater access to funds to local organizations in pursuing disaster linked activities need active support from all stakeholders who care for such a cause.

HAI is trying to fill a vacuum that has always been very tangible to us. It is surely an uphill task, but a meaningful one. Like the billion odd souls that define the idea of India, it is the support of individuals like you and me who can help HAI on its journey to help our own people. Remember, charity starts at home and India is our home.
