Through sharing and group discussion, PwDs and their caregivers have strengthened practical skills and lessons such as preparation is essential and safety is always the first because natural disasters are always unpredictable. For households with members who have severe disabilities, the elderly, the sick and children, it is very important to keep up with the news and follow local authorities' instructions on early evacuation.

At the end of the activity, each participant is given a set of tools including a plastic bucket, a chargeable flashlight, a rechargeable lamp and a life jacket. The activity took place before and after the period when Central provinces, including Gio Linh district, Quang Tri province, suffered a lot from damage caused by the tropical storms and floods and was held within the framework of the “Empowering people with disabilities” project (VM064) funded by Caritas Australia and DFAT.
