Philippine Red Cross celebrates National Disaster Resilience Month

The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) joins the annual observance of the National Disaster Resilience Month (NDRM) this July with the theme “Sambayanang Pilipino, Nagkakaisa tungo sa Katatagan at Maunlad na Kinabukasan.”

Executive Order no. 29, s. 2017 designates July of each year as the NDRM throughout the country. For its part, the PRC supports the government in its efforts to build resilience covering the four thematic areas of disasters: disaster prevention and mitigation, disaster preparedness, disaster response, and disaster rehabilitation and recovery.

“Ang Red Cross ay nakikiisa sa paggunita natin ng National Disaster Resilience Month ngayong buwan ng Hulyo. Hinihikayat ko ang ating mga kababayan na laging maging handa sa panahon ng kalamidad,” PRC Chairman and CEO Richard Gordon said.

In addition, the PRC has prepared its assets that deliver quick services in anticipation of rescue and relief operations amid disasters: 35 Food trucks, 178 Ambulance units, 5 Rescue trucks, 40 Rescue boats, 2 Amphibians, 8 Payloaders, 5 Six-by-six trucks, 8 Humvees, 15 Fire trucks, 28 Water tankers, 4 Fire tanker trucks, 2 Military jeeps, and 17 Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) hubs equipped with 30 water treatment units,  trained volunteers and staff, and hygiene promotion materials.

“Handa ang Red Cross na magbigay ng agarang tulong sa ating mga kabayayan sa panahon ng kalamidad. Bukod sa ating modernong operasyon, nariyan ang ating mga volunteers na handang magmalasakit sa kapwa ano mang oras,” Gordon added.

A year after Typhoon Rolly (Goni) hit the Bicol Region, the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) is continuing its recovery operations by helping the victims of last year’s super typhoon to stand on their feet and begin life anew.

On October 26, the final materials for shelter construction were delivered to Brgy. Bubulusan, Guinobatan, where the 2nd batch of houses are about to be completed.

For this batch, 25 houses are undergoing finishing works in the Rolly-affected community in Guinobatan. PRC plans to erect 164 houses in total as part of its shelter construction and monitoring activities in the said province. Including this batch, PRC has already built 30 houses, one in Bgry. Salvacion in Daraga, and 29 houses in Brgy. Bubulusan in Guinobatan.

“What we are doing in the Bicol Region is critical. We need to help them quickly to rebuild their lives by building their homes. Tulad ng sinabi ko nuong isang taon nang tumama ang bagyong Rolly, hindi natin dapat pabayaan ang ating mga kababayan na harapin ang mga trahedya ng mag-isa. Nandito ang Red Cross para umagapay, hangga’t makakaya namin, hindi kami titigil sa pagtulong,” said PRC Chairman and CEO Senator Dick Gordon.

PRC targets to complete all 164 houses by June of next year to be ready for occupancy by the project beneficiaries. Each house comes complete with electrical works, plumbing, and a water system.
