Psychosocial Support Training Course

Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has concluded a five-day specialized training course on protection, psychosocial support, and restoring family links (RFL), held in partnership with the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).

HE QRCS Secretary-General of Ambassador Ali bin Hassan Al Hammadi said on the occasion: "I believe that the importance of this course lies in the nature of the topics discussed. The trainees were provided with valuable information and experience in psychosocial support and RFL, two key areas of humanitarian work needed for relief personnel on the field. The graduates of this course are qualified to participate actively in foreign relief missions in the future".

"This is not the first training workshop and will not be the last one," he added. "QRCS has a high-quality year-round training program designed to provide relief workers and volunteers with the latest scientific developments in humanitarian and relief work, as well as to enhance their skills in the various specializations they are supposed to practice. This way, they will be prepared to respond to any disaster or humanitarian crisis, both locally and internationally, acting as good representatives of the State of Qatar among their fellow humanitarians".

For her part, Chief of IOM Mission in Qatar Iman Ereiqat expressed her happiness with the regions first-of-its-kind training course, which brought together IOMs mission in Qatar, QRCS, and ICRC. She commended the three organizations humanitarian role wherever there are disasters, being always prepared to lend a helping hand.

Meanwhile, Head of ICRC Mission in Qatar Cherine Pollini stated: "Various sessions on different topics were taught. I also had the opportunity to witness a lot of participation, and that is very important. This is how we learn. Beyond this training, other trainings will come up, through which we can develop and enhance the knowledge and exchanges."
