STH activities in Kalimpong

A contingent of the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) is in Kalimpong for the entire week (13May-17May2013) carrying out their "peacetime" role of training, capacity building and raising awareness about disasters.
STH was extremely glad to work alongside them as a local coordinator and took advantage of the NDRF visit to talk about cyclones and Cyclone MAHASEN in particular as it roars through the Bay of Bengal.
Several thousand school children and citizens of Kalimpong would be more aware about disasters, cyclones and the NDRF by the end of the week.

Praful Rao,
