    Thesis Mission Statement

    Thought there are many NFPs, Aids and people trying to help the victims of natural disaster, they are having problems transporting the supplies and themselves to the scene. I want to design a product or a system that could be made or found in the actual spot of natural disaster so the victims don’t have to wait helplessly and desperately.


    1. CARE: Our mission is to serve individuals and families in the poorest communities in the world. Drawing strength from our global diversity, resources and experience, we promote innovative solutions and are advocates for global responsibility. We facilitate lasting change by: • Strengthening capacity for self-help • Providing economic opportunity • Delivering relief in emergencies • Influencing policy decisions at all levels • Addressing discrimination in all its forms Guided by the aspirations of local communities, we pursue our mission with both excellence and compassion because the people whom we serve deserve nothing less.

    2. UMCOR: UMCOR's mission is to alleviate human suffering. We provide practical, proactive support to the most vulnerable survivors of chronic or temporary emergencies due to natural or civil causes.

    2. Matrix of Relationships
