RescueNet are a unique ministry that have been developed to be first responders in a disaster context. RescueNet go into a disaster well before other NGOs and stabalize the situation whilst other NGOs prepare their longer responses. By doing this hundreds of lives are saved that could have been lost. RescueNet are only on site for the maximum of a month. This unique niche that RescueNet fill is greatly appreciated in the disaster community.
