In very tolerant and supportive working atmosphere, volunteers showed that they rightly bear the name of the Red Cross aid workers. Although the group was heterogeneous by gender, age, education and experience they shown exceptional ability and a sense of working in a group, so that the workshop represented the full enjoyment and achieved full success.
