What we can control is how prepared we are as communities and governments to deal with the dangers that natural disasters bring.
Later in an interactive session, voluntarism and role of voluntary organizations was deliberated. TABA member associations’ representatives participated in the discussion. Ayesha Taslim reiterated that civil society organizations have roots in communities and as such they can play an important role in training for disaster preparedness.
