Each country determines which disasters it will respond to.

Senior Officers of the Board are elected annually and are currently:
Chairman: KK Looi (Disaster Aid Malaysia), firstname.lastname@example.org
Chairman Elect: Larry Agee (Disaster Aid USA)
Chairman Nominee: Pam Joyce (Disaster Aid UK and Ireland)
Disaster Aid International coordinates the work of its Country Partners to:
- Following a decision of one of the country partners to respond to a disaster it coordinates with other country partners.
- Increase the awareness of Disaster Aid International and its partners.
Disaster Aid International is actively expanding its country partnerships in order to extend its geographical spread and expertise.
Interested groups within Rotary are encouraged to contact Disaster Aid International if they would like to discuss becoming one of our Country Partners.
