Concerning: Security Awareness Training
Location: Maiduguri Nigeria
On behalf of the distribution team that attended the safety training on Friday, facilitated by William, I would like to thank the management for organizing such an educative training which is timely in light of the recent security developments in and around Maiduguri. William’s presentation was exceptional, thought provoking and realistic in its entirety. What we witnessed on the training day was a safety advisor at his best. To me personally, it is one of the best trainings I have ever had since joining the humanitarian community.
