In the wake of a disaster, establishing a suitable point of distribution is vital for the fulfillment of the public’s needs. It is no wonder emphasis is made on planning during the implementation of such programs. With a developed strategy and coordinated effort, the community will get those lifesaving commodities quickly and efficiently (Luis et al. 2012).
