RedR’s assessment team is now looking at what support aid agencies need as they work to deliver emergency aid to people affected by the earthquake. Technical training in the delivery of emergency water, sanitation, hygiene, shelter and logistics is high on the list of priorities, while international and local relief workers are also likely to require training in security and camp and project management.
Our needs assessment team is also examining training needs in the implementation of humanitarian standards and best practice in the field, such as technical standards under the SPHERE framework, the Humanitarian Accountability Framework aimed at making humanitarian action accountable to beneficiaries, and People in Aid, which promotes good practice in management and support of aid personnel.
Donations received from donors to Global Giving and other RedR supporters have allowed RedR to deliver an initial two-month training programme: with your generous support we hope to be able to extend this to a 12 month programme.
We are happy to report that we received a payment of almost $22,000 from Global Giving – thanks so much to our donors!
RedR will be sending out an emergency team to evaluate what support aid agencies will need in the coming weeks and months. We then plan to set up an emergency programme to provide vital training in key areas, including water, sanitation, shelter, security, and coordination, to local and international aid agencies operating in the region.
We’ll continue to keep our donors posted – but for now it’s full steam ahead to raise more funds to run this project!
