Anne - "In this event, I realised the significance of providing social and psychological support to the community in disaster-stricken area. The mental well-being of children, parents, and the elderly were greatly affected by the disaster."
Canien - "Most of the students were feeling worried and fear, so I taught them how to distinguish between imagination and reality, as imagination may lead to endless anxiety. On the other hand, if the emotions aroused due to actual situation, such as the flood which has damaged things in their homes, then it is more understandable. Several children also expressed relief over people providing bedsheets and helped them to clean up their houses."
