A delegation of four people from the Tunisian civil protection organisation ONPC is visiting THW’s management in Bonn for three days. Since Monday, together with THW’s international department, the team has been planning the continuation of the honorary office project, in particular six training courses for voluntary Tunisian experts at the locations of Sidi Bouzid, Jendouba and Ben Arous. THW supports its North African partner to build up a structure within their local civil protection, which is based on voluntary commitment.
Sawing, drilling, tearing down walls: In the local section of Sinzig, THW volunteers are instructing twelve Tunisian disaster management trainers how to handle tools and equipment. On Wednesday, they exercised in a derelict house in Oberzissen. On Tuesday, THW-President, Mr Albrecht Broemme, accompanied by THW’s Federal spokesman, Mr Frank Schulze, visited the guests from Tunisia.
