A Reactive Response to incidents is not the answer
More often than not the real victims of conflict due to lack of Government structure and/or in Country corruption, security and legal support networks are the civilians and whilst conflict can sometimes bring a change for the better it can also bring major challenges to Humanitarian groups, causing massive loss of civilian lives, terrorism, mass displacement and government breakdown. Economic breakdown then increases the lack of provision of law enforcement and in country security fuelling civil conflict, riots and mass genocide.
Throughout History we have learnt that Civilians tend to be the victims of genocide due to their vulnerability they are easy targets with no means of defence, villages/communities segregated with no governmental support and protection due to Government corruption the become soft targets to their aggressors, causing in some cases total eradication of civilian structures and survivors facing mass displacement, loss of infrastructure, starvation, disease, poverty and becoming even more vulnerable to additional obstacles.

History has taught us a lot but we have learned nothing, humanitarian Aid alone cannot replace political solutions. Reactive Response to incidents is not the answer. Our objective is promoting & securing economic development, resolving internal conflict and enhancing regional in Country control.
Genocide, Human & environmental security are not new challenges and by providing a pro-active response to a wide range of emergency situations we can make a difference.
