To increase community knowledge through preparedness measures and activities, CWS-P/A educated communities about disaster risk reduction (DRR) initiatives in Union Council Bijora of District Thatta. As soon as the flood emergency was declared in Sindh, CWS-P/A through its Mobile knowledge Resource Center (MKRC) vehicle started to disseminate information to mobilize communities. With aim to increase awareness about flood hazards and preparedness measures, pre flood safety messages were disseminated to reduce the losses. 
Through the innovative intervention of MKRC, CWS-P/A is educating communities to be prepared and empowered with skills and knowledge to minimize the risks posed from disasters. The MKRC also visits schools to educate students and teachers on how to prepare for and deal with possible natural disasters.
