Save the Children - East Africa Response
Across East Africa children face starvation because of drought.
A deadly combination of failed rains and rising food prices has left over 10 million people facing a devastating food crisis. Families have lost their incomes and food supplies.
Millions of children are hungry, thirsty and desperate. They are in danger of becoming critically malnourished and, without help, many in the worst hit areas could die.
Save the Children is already on the ground saving lives. We're rapidly providing food, water, medicine and crucial support to families who have lost their incomes.
We are actively recruiting for staff across various sectors and levels (see details below). For the moment, we are focussing on short-term deployments of up to 3 months with a possibility of extending to longer-term contracts as needed by the Country Programmes.
If you are interested in helping us in responding to this crisis, please send us an updated CV, your earliest availability and for how long, as well as specify which sector/role you are interested in.
We will be able to provide detailed TORs for the specific roles prior to deployment. The urgent need at the moment is to help Save the Children scale-up its response to the food crisis and we're looking for humanitarian professionals with solid experience in the field, especially within an Emergencies Context.
