The philosophy of our work is based on Filipinos helping one another. Thanks to your support, our volunteers continue to work on the rehabilitation of the areas affected by Typhoon Haiyan. Norhamidah "Nene" Musa is the first KI volunteer to be placed at Rescue Assistance Peacekeeping Intelligence Detail (RAPID) Inc an organization based in Cebu City. Nene has achieved much in the first 6 months in her placement, e.g. she has completed RAPID's Training Course on Rescue and life saving techniques and was part of the first response team in Cebu City after Typhoon Hagupit, last December.
Saving Lives Program
One way to help people to become more resilient to disaster is to train as many people as possible in life saving and rescue techniques. Nene is helping RAPID with its 'Saving Lives Program' which seeks to educate various Visayan communities by training volunteer community members. It specifically focuses on training the local Visayan youth and transforming out-of-school youth into trained rescuers. Nene also assisted in securing support from the office of President under the National Action Plan to sponsor the Saving Lives Program to more communities.
