It’s evident that it’s not only the poor countries that are most hardly hit by natural disasters, but it’s the poor people within these countries who bear the brunt of the impact. Cyclones, tsunamis, earthquakes, and erupting volcanoes are hazards, but they become deadly disasters when they happen in vulnerable areas where people have few defenses and no heads-up warning.
GlobalAlerts.org was founded to end this unfair unbalance and to provide these countries and regions with an alarm system anyone can take part in and afford. GlobalAlerts leaves no one behind, especially not those who are already suffering from poor living conditions. It is the only system that helps illiterate and visually impaired people get important information.
