Outraged at the injustice faced by people with disabilities and by vulnerable populations, we aspire to a world of solidarity and inclusion, enriched by our differences, where everyone can live in dignity.
Humanity and Inclusion is an international, independent and impartial non-profit organisation that intervenes in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. Working alongside people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, HI takes action and takes notice, to meet their basic needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.
For more information about the organisation: http://www.handicap-international.org
HI has offices in more than 55 countries and 2 HQ-based operational divisions:
- Humanitarian Action Division (DAH)
- Development Division (DAD)
HI is managing a large humanitarian program from four different hubs (South, Centre, North and North-East, along four main pillars:
1. Support to health partners (hospitals, care houses, psychosocial support centers, local NGOs) for the provision of comprehensive psychosocial support services ( psychosocial support, psychosocial support and/or prosthetics and orthotics) through training, technical supervisions and donations of assistive devices and/or equipment;
2. Emergency response to the basic needs of vulnerable people affected by sudden crisis, through one-shot distributions of food baskets, household essential items and hygiene kits, and through the management of an adapted humanitarian coordination mechanism for emergency responses.
3. Education to the risks and effects caused by conventional weapons (including mines, explosive remnants of war and small arms light weapons) and urgent marking of hazardous areas;
4. Training and technical support to other humanitarian actors on the inclusion of persons with disabilities and other vulnerable persons in the humanitarian response (with a special focus on inclusive health and inclusive livelihoods).
The actual intervention is based on a mix of remote management of national teams, remote partnerships with local structures and organizations, and direct implementation programs. In the North-East hub, HI has two separate field bases in two different governorates and manages its humanitarian and resilience programs with direct implementation modalities.
HI is launching some initial emergency activities (4 risk education mobile teams and support to a physical rehabilitation unit in a hospital) in the governorate of intervention from its 1st field base during April / June 2018.
Since the acute emergency needs in the governorate are very high and the current coverage from the humanitarian community is very low, HI is creating a new dedicated team for this governorate and is planning to scale up its response in the period from July 2018 to December 2018, expanding its activities, ensuring regular, closer supervision in the field, and setting the foundation for a sustainable presence/response.
In this context, and under the responsibility of the Field Coordinator for the governorate of intervention, the Logistic Manager will be in charge of managing of:
- Ensure the management of general logistic services (premises, fleet, stocks, com/IT equipment)
- Ensure appropriate and timely management of procurements, by the field logistic team (for small-scale procurements) or by the North-East hub supply team (for large-scale procurements)
- Managing and supervising the construction/rehabilitation works in two physical rehabilitation units, the establishment of two overnight points, and eventually the gradual establishment of a fully-fledged 3rd field base.
- Ensure recruitment, training and supervision of any logistic staff
- Train and support local partners on logistic procedures and systems
- Support the Field Coordinator for other urgent tasks and replace them at interim when requested
