Ten Village Project 农村项目

"The Village Square", Ma'anqiao Village 5, Jinshajiang, Sichuan Province, CHINA

About the project
Globally, China is the most natural disaster prone country and its rural population faces the highest natural disaster risk. These communities are often characterized by being ethnic minority based, living in extreme poverty (less than USD$1.25/person/day), having a lack of technical “know how” and resources for disaster preparedness. These at risk populations are often left to fend for their own survival post disaster. Since 2009, through the “Disaster preparedness in remote, extreme poverty, disaster prone non-Han ethnic minority villages in China: The Ten Village Project”, the health education team from the CUHK School of Public Health and Primary Care has been delivering health education in remote community sites in China.
