Workshop in Karak on the International Movement of the Red Cross and Red Crescent

12 Feb 2017

The National Red Crescent Society of Jordan organised a training workshop in Karak on Saturday, for the Presidents, members and volunteers of the Society's Branches in the governorates of Karak, Tafila, Ma'an and Aqaba. The workshop focused on the definition of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement and team building.

The head of Karak Hossam Al-Mahadin Branch stressed the importance of such workshops to educate the workers of the Crescent and the Red Cross on the basic principles of the international movement, which is disseminated all over the world. He pointed out that the Jordan National Red Crescent Society has 10 branches distributed throughout the Kingdom's governorates, providing services to refugees and service recipients in order to alleviate the suffering of victims of armed conflict. These refugees are vulnerable to natural disasters and other emergencies, and JRC is charged with protecting their dignity and rights in a way that preserves their safety and their lives.

Development officer, Farouk Al-Rashdan, presented the movement's history, components, objectives, principles and activities. He pointed out that the workshop comes within the Capacity Building Program organised by JRC, aimed at members of the Branches, to build the teams, their communication skills and dialogue management.

JRC's Head of Organizational Development, Farah Al-Hadid, explained that the participants in the workshop received practical and theoretical training that enables them to work in exceptional circumstances, communicate with their colleagues in the Branches, recruit volunteers and enhance self-communication, and preserve the financial resources of the associations.
