On Thursday, May 24th, CADUS and the Kurdish Red Crescent joined together for the first training of the mobile hospital. About 15 Kurdish Red Crescent crew members joined the CADUS project coordinators, infield head of mission, and technician to learn about the operation of the mobile hospital which will soon be utilized in the field.

The CADUS technician taught the HSaK/KRC crew about the operation of the mobile hospital including running the generators, flood lights, air coolers, and keeping the mobile hospital trucks and trailers in good working condition. We are very happy about the excellent communication and understanding of HSaK/KRC.
