on 02 November 2015

From 18th to 29th October 2015, HCR-CTRO conducted the second stage of the project “Mine Action – Education of Syrian Refugees in Refugee Camps“, financed by the Croatian Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs from the development assistance programme. The training was conducted in cooperation with the Jordanian Nacional Centre for Demining and Rehabilitation (NCDR) in the town of Mafraq, for forty trainees from the refugee camp in that town in Jordan. It was a train-the-trainer course on mine risk education (MRE). The trainees are now qualified to transfer the mine risk awareness messages and knowledge to the Syrian population upon their return to Syria. In the second stage of the project, as in the first one, there were 40 trainees in two groups of 20.


The trainees were awarded Certificates of Completion by Mr. Mohammad Breikat, NCDR Director and Mr. Nikola Pavković, HCR-CTRO Director. The trainees prepared a short theatre play in which, beside the trainees themselves, school headmasters and other prominent citizens of Mafraq participated.
