SARC ( Syrian Arab Red Crescent) has organized a workshop on "mobility health aid", in the framework of supporting students' health activities, enhancing their capacities, and linking their theoretical education to practical training. SARC accepted the invitation of Al-Manara University in Lattakia to hold an introductory training workshop about Mobile Aid for people with disabilities.

As well as practical session about disassembling, assembling and using wheelchairs, walkers and canes.
