Helping People Help Themselves: Bacolod Episode


Oct 14


As landslides claimed lives and wrecked homes, the people of Bacolod recognized the need to come together and form a Disaster Preparedness Committee which now continues to raise preparedness and encourages community participation in anticipation of, and response during and after disasters. The Center for People’s Resources and Services (CPRS) and the people’s past experiences taught them that preparedness is their best defense against calamities.
