Photo Competition

The PS Centre is inviting all National Societies to participate in our photo competition!

Due to the travel restrictions, it has been challenging for the PS Centre to take or collect photos documenting the MHPSS work done by National Societies in 2020. We are therefore hoping for assistance from Red Cross Red Crescent National Society staff and volunteers, to submit their MHPSS-related photos as a part of our photo competition.
