Project Venus: Disaster Response Training for Mothers

The second series – Project Venus: Disaster Response Training for Mothers was held last March 12, 2017 at Barangay Tumana, Marikina City.

The seminar, facilitated by Pres. Joenas Galinato of JCI San Juan Katipuneros, empower Mothers on emergency preparedness during incidents that may impact the life of their family. The mothers were trained in basic response skills such as CPR, basic household first-aid, and family surivival supply.

Using the training learned from the seminar and during exercises, these mothers can now assist others in their neighborhood or workplace following an event when professional responders are not immediately available to help.

This Disaster Response Training for Mothers was hosted by JCI Marikina Marikit, JCI Makati Princess Urduja, JCI San Juan Dambana, and JCI San Juan Katipuneros.

Metro Area would like to thank and congratulate the hardworking hosts and Area Chairman Chessa Pituk of JCI Marikina Marikit for hosting a successful launch of Pinay Power in Metro Area.
