Friends Rescued (FRs) of the Philippine Army’s 53rd Infantry “Matapat” Battalion (53IB) attended a Community-Based Disaster and Risk Reduction Management (CBDRRM) Training Course held by the Office of Civil Defense Region 9 (OCD-IX) on August 26-27, 2021 at Chandler Suites in Pagadian City.

The two-day CBDRRM training is a process in which at-risk communities actively participate in disaster risk assessment, analysis, treatment, monitoring, and evaluation in order to minimize their vulnerabilities and strengthen their capacities.

It was facilitated by OCD Staff: HR Focal/Information Officer Capacity Building and Training Section (CBTS) Ms. Kimberly Amor, Asstistant Chief, CBTS-OCDIX; Ms. Raiyah Sindatoc, Training Specialist-CBTS-OCDIX; Mr. Jenner Pandan, and Chief CBTS-OCDIX; and Ms. Kornessa L. Paras.

Project Good Life for Friends Rescued (FRs) is an inclusive wellbeing psychoeducation program launched by the 53rd Infantry Battalion in collaboration with a number of organizations and national government agencies with the goal of translating the findings of an initial strength-based research inquiry among former rebels of the 53rd Infantry Battalion into community extension service.

It’s a need-based program for FRs to assist Executive Order 70, which formalizes the country’s Whole-of-Nation strategy to ending local communist violent struggle.
