Independently of the participations in training courses, FLASH has developed didactic concepts and materials for training courses, has been involved in research of material and equipment for humanitarian aid and participated in numerous meetings to set up training plans of various organizations. The year 2008 was also an intense year regarding our training centre “Can Mola” near Barcelona, where we are rehabilitating some classrooms and the surroundings of an old Masia with our own hands. Gradually and with our means, we are trying to set up a solid infrastructure (proper minibus, training centre, equipment, etc.) and to gain more and more trainers and organizations interested in our project.

In 2008, FLASH did also short missions and consultancies in Yemen and Guinea Bissau for the projects of Medicos sin Fronteras Spain.
