1 Disaster Preparedness & Disaster Response Training @ Kunming, China

This was my 4th trip to Kunming after the 2014 Ludian Earthquake to conduct training with our local partners. It was a great joy to see the brothers and sisters in the province of Yunnan consistently sharing on disaster awareness with the locals. Yunnan is one of the provinces in China that has the highest risk in earthquake and poverty among the minority tribes.
