Earthquake education for disaster risk mitigation is definitely needed in areas affected by the phenomena. Since last year, our team has been working to make this happen.
UNICEF Malaysia entered into a two-year partnership with the Natural Disaster Research Centre (NDRC), Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS) to begin an earthquake education programme as a catalyst to empower over 4000 students in 114 primary schools in possible affected areas in the state of Sabah.
This is to advocate for and strengthen child-centred disaster risk reduction mechanisms with the goal that this will be mainstreamed by government agencies such as the Ministry of Education as well as the National Disaster Management Agency (NADMA).
Malaysia has made tremendous progress since Merdeka in uplifting the well-being of its people. A wide range of government programmes has been carried out to alleviate poverty and target the most disadvantaged population, including children.
The UNICEF report on urban child poverty clearly demonstrates significant progress and impact in reducing poverty and improving the situation of children in Malaysia.
We were happy to see a growing debate on finding new ways to improve t...he well-being of children living in low-cost flats and are following with interest the emerging call for universal childcare allowance in line with one of the policy recommendations made in the report.

With no study space, children are forced to do their homework on the floor by the TV. Despite this, their results are on par with national averages. What heights they would achieve if given all the tools to succeed.
Rain in parking lot - sounds poetic but the reality is less so.
"Kuala Lumpur experiences heavy rain frequently and this causes the drainage systems around low-cost housing to clog up."
