Country risk reduction profile: Disaster Risk Reduction in Cuba

Hurricanes are common in Cuba - the island's geographic location puts it in the path of devastating and frequent hurricane strikes. The programmes Save the Children has implemented in Cuba over the past 2 years have collectively reached over 16,600 children directly and over 176,000 beneficiaries, directly and indirectly. Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) activities include emergency preparedness & response, and environmental education for children, including disabled children.
