The five-day course was held at the headquarters of Awraq Community Development Organisation, Gaziantep, with funding from QRCS and it was attended by 30 coordinators, project managers, and medics from 17 humanitarian agencies in northern Syria, reported English daily Peninsula.
The course is aimed at preparing CMAM trainers, crucial to treating child malnutrition at QRCS centres.
