The National Volunteer Steering Unit collaborated with the Ministry of Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement, the Ministry of Health and Sports, and Myanmar Medical Association yesterday and organized an online training course for volunteers assisting in close proximity in quarantine centers who have yet to attend courses.
The National Volunteer Steering Unit has published the volunteer training handbook for volunteers assisting in COVID-19 prevention, control and treatment procedures and responses, the amount of time they can give for the quarantine centres, assigning tasks for close proximity and at a distance based on the given situation, arranging protective equipment, temporary accommodation, food, transport and resting spaces, and conferring certificates of honour.
The list of close proximity volunteers who have not attended training courses was compiled. The first batch contained 62 volunteers in Nay Pyi Taw Council, Magway and Bago regions, and Chin and Kayah states. The training topics include giving psychosocial support and assisting certain target groups such as women, the elderly, pregnant mothers and babies, youths, people living with disabilities, and people with chronic illnesses. The online course also taught the volunteers disease preventive measures and how to put on a protective suit.
The National Volunteer Steering Unit will continue to provide training courses for volunteers who have yet to receive training.—MNA (Translated by Zaw Htet Oo)
