Thank-You Statement

Contributors to the course are thanked and donors acknowledged.

This six-week course was developed by the Alliance for Child Protection in Humanitarian Action (the Alliance), by Claire Whiting and Elena Giannini, together with the support and engagement of Plan International and a wide range of Alliance members.

It was possible to set up this course thanks to all of the work that had already gone into drafting guidance notes, webinars and other tools for the COVID-19 outbreak. Again, we would like to express our gratitude to all of those involved, and a special thank you for contributors who have recorded resources from the field!
