Elizabeth D. INANDIAK : Humanitarian Aid in Crisis Situations: the Utility of Mini-Structures

Elisabeth INANDIAK PRASETYO explains that the villagers formed many working groups called "rondas" (word of Portuguese origin) that enabled them to buy the material needed for rebuilding the village and feeding the workers. She points out that flexible loans and mutual respect were key elements in generating substantial improvement with very limited financial resources. She points out a model of assistance based on a system of mini-structures that is different from those adopted by NGOs. She speaks out against NGOs for not collaborating in these types of initiatives.
