The joint project of the German Federal Agency for Technical Relief (THW) and the Tunisian “Office National de la Protection Civile” (ONPC) has been in place for 10 years now to build up volunteer structures in Tunisian civil protection and disaster management. The volunteers help, for instance, in traffic accidents, floods or forest fires, but also in the fight against the Corona pandemic. With the help of THW, more than 100 training events and workshops in civil protection and disaster management have been implemented so far. Today, the project counts a number of approximately 3,200 registered volunteer members in Tunisia.
