-Nepali version- Saving lives, changing minds on Nepal roads on top of the World
Description: Kathmandu, Nepal The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies – the IFRC - operates in 190 countries around the world. In many of its humanitarian operations, it utilises four-wheel drive vehicles, primarily the 4 x 4 vehicles, to bring Disaster Response assistance to those in need. The drivers of these vehicles hold very responsible positions. Apart from ensuring the care of expensive equipment, that is the vehicles themselves, drivers are also responsible for the safety of passengers and of other road users. They are also often the first Nepal Red Cross Society and IFRC representatives to receive and welcome guests and as such, playing a key role in making a positive and lasting first impression. The 4 x 4 vehicles help us do our job. The life of a driver and that of passengers depends on how well the vehicle works in the field. As a driver, you are responsible for what you do, and for the image and reputation of the Nepal Red Cross Society and International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. It is therefore imperative that as a driver you know your limitations when behind the wheel and not exceed them. The objective of this International Fleet management and Road Safety Driver training is designed to equip drivers with the knowledge and skills required to operate these vehicles and their additional equipment and tools, while at the same time have great knowledge of the vehicles they operate and while having an improved appreciation of Nepal’s topography which presents the most challenging and dangerous driving experience in the world.

Dominica: Moses Lewis, local baker, picking himself up after Hurricane Maria
Description: Dominica, September/October 2017 More on Moses Lewis's story: https://media.ifrc.org/ifrc/2017/10/03/determined-rebuild-surviving-hell-dominica/ Hurricane Maria follows after catastrophic Hurricane Irma devastated islands across the Caribbean weeks before. This second deadly hurricane further complicates response and recovery efforts launched in the aftermath of Irma, making it more difficult to deploy supplies and expertise to where they are needed. According to assessments by the Caribbean Disaster Emergency Management Agency (CDEMA), between 80-90 percent of buildings in Dominica have been damaged or destroyed. All of the country’s crops have been devastated, and 75 percent of the island’s trees have been damaged or ripped out of the ground. The hurricane also triggered landslides, cutting off roads and making access to rural communities difficult.
