Kirtimayi Mishra is the current Head of Office at Catholic Relief Services (CRS) India. As a long standing humanitarian, she has seen her community and country become transformed through the work of Catholic Relief Services. As her role as Head of Office, Kirtimayi oversees programs that build community resilience, reducing the impact of floods on the livelihoods of vulnerable communities in the most disaster stricken and food insecure states of India.
We invite you to a conversation with Kirtimayi Mishra. Come and listen how she is building resilient communities in the midst of natural disaster. Kirtimayi expressed that resilient communities can fish. “[If you] give a person a fish, you feed him for a day; [if you] teach a person to fish and you feed people for a lifetime. While it is important to have humanitarian response in the aftermath of disaster, it is worth investing in community preparedness and building resilience so that communities are not dependent on external assistance or relief. This is what CRS is doing in India and countries around the world. Come and listen her story and her lifesaving work.
