One of Trauma Aid’s 2023 objectives is sustainable capacity building in regions where we are working. Accreditation is a key component of sustainability and Accredited Consultants are a pre-requisite.

In March 2023, Robin Logie led a Consultants’ Training Course in Egypt.

Twenty Participants enjoyed the course.

Robin and our Trauma Aid UK Team also had a brief opportunity to see some local sights.
