The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) assists in the province of Aklan through its Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (SGBV) Prevention project at Kalibo, Aklan, on October 29, 2021.

The SGBV project is in partnership with the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) and the British Red Cross, which aims to assist 250 families under Household Livelihood assistants of SGBV survivors and support six community-managed livelihood projects.

The event will be attended by PRC Chairman and CEO Sen. Dick Gordon, PRC Secretary Elizabeth Zavalla, Acting Head of the delegation of IFRC Gopal Mukherjee, Aklan Vice Governor Hon. Reynaldo Quimpo, Kalibo Mayor Hon. Emerson Lachica, Nabas Mayor Hon. James Solano-Mayor, and other executives of PRC and the local government unit of Aklan.

This event will also assist 130 households with initial business capital of PHP 6,000 in the first tranche, and PHP 4,000 to help the chosen beneficiaries to recover in this time of the pandemic.

“Walang maiiwan lalo na sa panahon ngayon. Kailangan natin tulungan ang mga SGBV survivors at ang mga community na higit na nangangailangan. Our duty in the Red Cross is to bring hope and uplift the dignity of the most vulnerable. Maraming Salamat sa IFRC at sa British Red Cross for this partnership to be bearers of hope to those in need,” Sen. Dick Gordon said.

The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) will conduct a webinar on suicide prevention for the Bangsamoro Youth in celebration of World Suicide Prevention Day 2021 on September 10.

PRC Red Cross Youth will facilitate the interactive webinar on suicide prevention, in partnership with the Bangsamoro youth commission, Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (BARMM), German Red Cross, Spanish Red Cross, and funded by the European Union.

The webinar will cover a series of topics with Gab Valenciano, a mental health advocate, celebrity, and guest speaker. Gab will talk about the story of hope, while Psychiatrist Dr. Agnes Casino will tackle suicide prevention and response, and Social Worker Predinson Morales will discuss dealing with distressed individuals.

“We need to focus and give assistance to the mental health of our youth Muslim brothers and sisters in the BARMM region. Some of them don’t have access, so we in the Red Cross will conduct a webinar for mental health support,” PRC Chairman and CEO Sen. Dick Gordon said.

Recently PRC conducted a webinar series, as part of the Welfare Services peace and development project to reduce the impact of the covid-19 pandemic and foster the public health system and socioeconomic development in BARMM last Aug 2021.
