Preparing to reduce Disaster Risks

In 2013, Paigaam conducted a variety of Disaster Risk Reduction programs in Districts Layyah and Jhang in collaboration with Rescue 1122 and Civil Defence of Pakistan.  Through this project, five Disaster Management Committees were trained, each with seven members; two Emergency Teams were trained, each with 24 members, and community awareness events were held for thousands of people. This project demonstrated our ability to work smoothly and effectively with NGOs, government agencies, political parties and the media for the common good.  Local authorities have asked us to conduct similar programs in the future. In 2015, therefore, Paigaam launched another DRR project training local communities in flood-prone areas of District Jhang.
