Women offer a unique perspective

“Women are very dedicated and vigilant, and so during emergency management they are very careful with stock-taking of provisions, and very good with documentation and keeping track. Even for other activities where men provide the physical strength, women provide support. So, men and women have to work hand in hand, like when you eat food, you have to drink water,” says Pinij Pudpong, the village head, and a member of the Committee.
