BANDUNG-Understanding of disaster anticipation, is not owned by normally person, but also those with special needs should also understand it.
Therefore, today(11/04/16) Wahana Visi Indonesia supported by Prudence Foundation, Save the Children, Humanitarian Aid and Civil Protection, Australian Aid, Mercy Malaysia, AADMER Partnership Group, and Plan International held a Disaster Simulation for children with special needs.
Vice Principal Counselling of SLB Negeri A Bandung, Muftiah Yulismi said SLB is chosen for these activities, because disabilities are often marginalised.
