Hear ICRC engineers reflect on their skills workshop hosted by our teams in Eclépens

ICRC engineers from conflict zones, who attended a construction course at a LafargeHolcim cement plant in Switzerland, talk about the training and their work.


Our partnership with the humanitarian organization, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) began as a financial donation. But over the years, the ties have broadened and deepened.

ICRC water and habitat engineers from some of the most challenging parts of the world this year attended the fifth annual skills workshop - a week-long construction training course, hosted by LafargeHolcim in Eclépens, Switzerland. During a break in the training, the engineers, who are working in Afghanistan, Central African Republic, Nigeria, Somalia and the Ukraine, shared their thoughts on the course and reflected on their work in the field.
