You might be aware of the recent fire in the Ambinanikely commune and the work that SEED has done to help the community in it's recovery process. In this week's blog we reflect on the response to this disaster, why community empowerment is so important for recovery and how our organisational code of conduct plays an essential role even in times of emergency.
