Urgent need for skills in Haiti

RedR sent a team to Haiti to assess what training and support would be needed as the international community works with Haitians to provide relief to people affected by the disaster.

The team’s work has shown that relief workers on the ground need more training in logistics - such as effective distribution and warehousing, as well as courses on how to manage people and projects in emergency situations. There is also a need for training and support in technical areas like camp management, site planning and structural assessment. And the team anticipate that training in water and sanitation will be needed once more permanent sites are planned.

Thanks to people like you, RedR was able to begin on-the-job training at the end of February with content delivered as short, open courses of one to two days duration.

Thank you so much for your support. Watch this space for further updates.
