First Aid Training for Refugees
What better place for training the principles of first aid than in a refugee camp where emergency medical help may either be present only part-time or not at all. Bring Hope Humanitarian Foundation taught basic first aid in 3 languages, Kurdish, English and Arabic at Kawergosk and Baharka refugee camps.
