Community Campaign 2016

Non-profit organisations have extensive experience and expertise in areas of community engagement, education, and various facets of service provision. The existing networks reach far into communities of difference types. Therefore, HKJCDPRI launches annual “Community Campaign on Disaster Resilience” to support local Non-profit organisations (NGOs) on a series of public awareness and education campaign implementation.

In 2016, HKJCDPRI successfully launched the first “Community Campaign on Disaster Resilience” under the theme “Date to Prepare – before It’s too Late”.

Four NGO partners had joined forces to design and deliver campaigns with HKJCDPRI, tailored to enhance the resilience of those who are more vulnerable to disasters due to various reasons. Collectively we aim to lead positive individual attitudes and behaviours in protecting oneself when disaster strikes.

Over 9,000 people have benefited from the campaigns in 2016 – get in touch with us if you would like to give us a hand in 2017.
