What the participants said:      

             ‘I found the training interested because it made me aware of certain issues such as the different cultures and their     rituals, rules to observe while having contact with migrants in the presence of an interpreter, taking care of ourselves by receiving the immunisations required to safe guard our health, and also lots of information about the different types of status an immigrant have.  Such training is very important because it helps me acquire more skills in how to handle situations when working with immigrants.’  
Josephine Muscat (Agenzija Appogg)
