“What are the basic principles of humanitarian aid? How can I show my solidarity with those suffering in a humanitarian crisis? And are there any possibilities to get active by myself?” These questions have been discussed by the ten participants of the first TEACH workshop about Humanitarian Aid, organized by Caritas Romania, together with two local Caritas organizations on March 28th in Oradea. The participants learnt about humanitarian aid programs around the world funded by Caritas Romania, about principles like solidarity and subsidiarity and about volunteering opportunities offered by the EU Aid volunteers initiative.
The workshop has been the first event in a series of similar workshops and information caravans that will be organized in the coming weeks and month in several cities in Romania, aiming to raise the awareness for humanitarian aid programs and to inform the interested public about the EU Aid Volunteers Initiative.
