You are cordially invited to attend the Safeguarding Resource and Support Hub (RSH) Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Hub launch event, supported by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO).

The MENA Hub is part of RSH and aims to support organisations in the aid sector in the MENA region to strengthen their safeguarding policy and practice against sexual exploitation, abuse and sexual harassment (SEAH). Relying on a locally contextualised approach, and after the successful launch of the global and Africa Hubs, we are pleased to invite you to the launch of the MENA Online Hub. 

Please visit our redesigned website and register for our event to learn more about safeguarding and SEAH, hear from FCDO and experts, and find out how the RSH programme and our three National Hubs in Jordan, Syria and Yemen can support your work.
