The Syrian Arab Red Crescent constantly works on building capacity and skills of its volunteers at the field work, in order to be able to deliver humanitarian services efficiently. For this purpose , a Telecom Radio workshop was held for three days (1-3 March 2015) . The workshop brought together 17 volunteers from different Rural-Damascus’ sub-branches and centers.

The volunteers were trained by Eng. Abdullah Al-Binni (telecom coordinator at SARC- HQ), Eng. Sami Aliu and Aubai Ajaeken, ICRC technician officer .
The workshop was concluded with a field visit to (Katana and Arneh sub-branches). This visit was aimed to study the geographical situation there and to provide the technical support later.
