A two-day Camp Coordination and Camp Management Training was held at Mindanao Civic Center Hotel Function Hall. The activity was led by the Department of Social Welfare and Development Region 10 on November 14-15, 2017. This event was organized in reaction to what transpired in Marawi when armed militants ravaged the City in the name of their false and inhumane ideologies. The war caused the residents of the city to flee from danger and took shelter into nearby municipalities and cities where emergency evacuation centers were established.
Provincial Social Welfare and Development Officer, Ms. Annabelle S. Mendez and the rest of the team joins the training and actively participates in the activity along with the Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction Management Office and the Municipal Social Welfare Development Office of Poona-Piagapo, Kapatagan, Linamon, Kauswagan, Bacolod, Kolambugan, Sultan Naga Dimaporo, Salvador and Nunungan.
Ms. Virginia M. Cardona, Social Welfare Officer IV of DSWD 10 was tasked to expand the knowledge and update the techniques in Camp Coordination and Camp Management to participants through technical advisory and advocacy role for the proper implementation and use of bunkhouse and tents.
The participants were also challenged to create layout of their own evacuation centers in order for them to know and learn how to maximize the geography and efficiency of the evacuation center as well as the resources available during the given moment in times of crisis. Participants were also taught on how to coordinate with the emergency response teams of the PDRRMO for rescue and manage the flow of evacuees coming into the province.
