This book focuses on the efficacy of social capital in assisting survivors of natural calamities to deal with psychological grief. The extensive damages caused by natural disasters leave survivors in a state of shock as lives are lost; infrastructure and property are destroyed within a short space of time. Social capital serves as an informal source of protection and cover which revitalise the sense of courage and optimism among the survivors of natural disasters. It resonates with people on the ground and promotes positive aspects of community life. The members of the society are more coordinated and can assist those who are traumatised.
