2013 Annual Report now available

2013 saw both an earthquake and typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines, the Gansu earthquake in China, the Westgate Mall attack in Nairobi, the outbreak of violence in the Central African Republic and South Sudan, the Ebola outbreak in Uganda, bombings at the Boston Marathon, the second anniversary of the triple disaster in Japan, the third year of the Syrian crisis and many more sudden or ongoing crises around the world.

A common denominator of these crises has been the inclusion of psychosocial support in the Red Cross Red Crescent response. The PS Centre has been involved in all of these crises, providing operational and technical support, capacity building and advocacy to National Societies, regional and zonal offices.
