  • How does radio help in time of disaster?

     
    00:00

    This program tries to explain what role does radio play in times of emergency and disasters. Different situations where disaster has affected people are looked into; agricultural, education, health sector. In the agricultural sector, it has been found that disaster creates dry spell, floods and even pests and diseases. When these effects reaches crops many farmers may have little or no food which may lead to malnutrition of children and even elders.

    When we look into the education sector, we have found out that children are affected by disaster and that some children may fail to go to school when rivers flood and even when food is scarce.

    Health sector is also subject to disaster through lack of food. Dry spell and flood may cause it and shortage of food causes children to suffer from malnutrition.

    So it has been found that radio play a great role in all aspects in a way that it informs people on what to do in order to combat the effects of disaster. Radio helps give awareness to people.
