MHPSS expertise for Cordaid

ARQ International is partnering with Cordaid to support its ambition to strengthen and deepen Cordaid’s internal expertise and programming capacity on MHPSS in 2020 and beyond.

As a large INGO investing in health, emergencies and education, Cordaid realised that Mental Health and Psychosocial Support are conditional for people to rebuild their lives during and after hardship. Cordaid and ARQ International decided to join forces in a partnership.

Concretely, ARQ International is delivering MHPSS expertise in the form of strategic and programming advice, training and tools, staff support, and tailored support to Cordaid’s programmes.
