Kalinga set to implement German–funded DRRM proj
by PIA–Kalinga

TABUK CITY, Kalinga – Red Cross will implement next month a two-year project that aims to contribute to the consolidation and implementation of institutionalized and operational Disaster Risk Reduction and Management (DRRM) in the grassroots and to help enhance the resilience of communities.

Raymund Chan, OIC Red Cross Kalinga administrator, said they will train 10 people who will train a minimum of 44 volunteers in the barangays covered by the project to make up the Red Cross 143 organization or one volunteer-leader plus 43 volunteers.

Kalinga is among the seven provinces in the country covered under the second phase of the German Red Cross-funded project titled “Empowering the Philippine Red Cross, communities and government institutions to consolidate and implement inclusive community- based disaster risk reduction in seven provinces in the Philippines.”

The project, with a grant of €1,58,006.53, will be implemented in 70 barangays and 84 schools in the 14 municipalities  of Kalinga, Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, La Union, Pangasinan, Zambales, and Isabela.

For Kalinga, Pinukpuk, Tabuk City, and five barangays along the Chico River were selected as  beneficiaries because they are disaster-prone areas, Chan said.

He said that the first activity covers re-assessment on the operability of DRRM plans of the municipal/city and barangays.

He added that the trained instructors will teach DRRM in one high school and five elementary schools during the duration of the project, including the production and distribution of information, education, and communication campaign materials and organization of a Red Cross Youth.

Chan said the 44 trained volunteers will be assigned tasks in the areas of safety, blood sourcing, social, communications, response, and logistics.
