Haiti radio drama teaches people how to stay alive during disasters

Source(s):  United Nations Radio (UN Radio)

A popular UN-backed radio drama series is teaching people in Haiti how to stay alive when disasters hit, the producer of the show, Christina Guerin, has said.

While Haiti was still recovering from a devastating earthquake that ravaged the island nation in 2010, Hurricane Matthew caused further deadly destruction in October last year.

The UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR) has been supporting the "Tim Tim" drama series with an aim to inform and educate people on disaster prevention.

World Radio Day (WRD) has been set aside each February 13 to celebrate radio as a medium but also to highlight its power, even in emergency situations.

Speaking from Port-au-Prince, Ms Guerin began by explaining to Jocelyne Sambira how the series has been more effective than Public Service Announcements or PSAs.
