St. Kitts and Nevis celebrating the International Day for Disaster Risk Reduction 2012

MAIN ORGANIZER(S): National Emergency Management Agency (Saint Kitts and Nevis) (NEMA)

Type: Meeting or Conference Date: 12 Oct 2012 Location: Saint Kitts and Nevis Venue: Independence Square

This year’s activities intend to, among other things, highlight stories of action and initiative by women and girls, while attempting to move beyond the tendency to portray them as victims. Celebrations for International Natural Disaster Reduction Day include a march that culminates with a rally in support of women and girls, at Independence Square on October 12th.

This year, the Ministry of Health will again be collaborating with NEMA, as they will be hosting activities in celebration of Mental Health Day, which takes place on October 10th. Nurse Amory, a member of the committee has noted that their theme, “Depression: A Global Crisis”, fits in nicely with NEMA’s efforts to bring awareness to the contributions and hindrances of women and girls, especially as many females suffer from depression in silence.
