In emergencies, older people and persons with disabilities are among the most at risk because of they experience increased difficulties due to separation from family, loss of assistive and mobility devices, and difficulties with accessing information and humanitarian relief. The situation is compounded by pre-existing cultural and social discrimination. Humanitarian organizations are categorized as the cluster system of United Nations.
