Getting children back into school after emergencies
The Philippines is hit by around 20 tropical cyclones every year, state weather bureau PAGASA reported. That’s a lot for one year.
Aside from typhoons, other forms of natural calamities can happen, such as earthquakes, landslides, extreme flooding, and volcanic eruptions, among several others.
We cannot always predict when disasters would exactly strike; we can, however, prepare for it.
Do your children know what to do before, during, and after emergency situations?
