The FRR South Asia team has met, coordinated and assessed where to deploy. Yesterday it was agreed that there is great need in the northern district of Rasuwa where reports say all radio is off the air. They tested the kit, stocked and tuned 140 radios, stocked up with food and supplies and got ready for an early start on Wed 5th May.
First Response Radio (FRR) is a network of radio broadcasters, NGOs and Government partners.
Our members have been working in disaster areas since the Tsunami of 2004, providing critical information via radio, as aid. Our goal is to set up a radio station for the affected community within 72 hours of a disaster.
The best way we have discovered to build this capacity is to equip and train teams before disaster strikes.
