The Disaster Response Radio: A Meaningful Encounter

Two days before the 4th anniversary of Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan), members of the International Association of Women in Radio and Television (IAWRT) International Board traveled to Bantayan Island in northern Cebu last November 6 to meet the community who survived the disaster and is now working for the establishment of their community radio station.

They met the survivors who are eager to learn about mass communications and to use these skills to claim and exercise their communication rights. More importantly, they saw a community determined to rise after a tragedy.

Here is a video of what transpired that day. (IAWRT International Video / Directed and edited by Iphigenie Marcoux-Fortier of IAWRT Canada)
