      Dear Sameh Hattab,

      Thank you for your interest in the Caring for Volunteers training. This, however, is merely a generic description of the training, which can be requested by National Societies org IFRC operational units. There are no specific trainings planned for the coming time.

      Kind regards,

      Louise Juul Hansen, communications officer.
