He added,” PCHR’s doors will always be open to participants in order to benefit from PCHR’s experience.”

 

Basam al-Aqra’, Director of the Training Unit, said that, “the course was characterized with the large number of participated organizations that PCHR cooperated with them for the first time, allowing PCHR to reach relatively new categories”.
