School children recently experienced what it is like to be in a World Vision’s Child-Friendly Space (CFS), a space for children who are affected by disasters such as fire, earthquake, and typhoons, during Malabon City’s Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) event. Several activities conducted in the CFS for students to try. Activities include storytelling, board games, and puzzles. There are also toys such as Jenga and shape sorter for children to play. Children are grouped into three: 6 years below, 7-12 years old, and 13 and above years old. The DRR event is held annually to remind the people of Malabon on the importance of preparation before disaster strikes. This year, Malabon focuses on fire prevention, which is also a government-led campaign this March. Around 40 organizations joined the said DRR activity with the theme, “Ligtas na Pilipinas ating kamtin. Bawat pamilya ay sanayin. Kaalaman sa sunog ay palawakin“.
