With your generous donation, GHC was able to develop training materials related to COVID-19, provide virtual training, and have a debriefing session post-training.
The training was on Health and Safety in the Context of COVID-19. It took place on the19th of January at 12:30 PM Myanmar time, and it lasted 3 hours.
There were 25 participants from the following organizations:
-The Way Station
-Suicide Prevention Myanmar
-The Holding Umbrellas Foundation
-Skills for Humanity
-Phaung Daw OoMonastery
After the training, the participants gained an understanding of how viruses emerge and were able to identify risk factors from coronaviruses in various populations and settings. More importantly, they learned how to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and how to protect themselves and their communities. In addition, they explore healthy ways to cope with stress during COVID-19, and were introduced to COVID-19 vaccine principles.
The participant’s feedback to the training was very positive, in their words:
“Such a good training session. Now [we] know even more how to fight against this virus! The knowledge [we] got will be spread to our school”.
Again, thank you for your donation which allowed GHC to support this training at such a critical time.
