One of our core skills is working in an emergency setting. Some of our experts are specialists in acting as Emergency Response finance and grant personnel in an emergency context for leading NGOs around the world. Some of them are also trained disaster assessment experts. All Emergency Response Experts are security trained and have experience working in an emergency setting.
We help our NGO clients respond to disasters with immediate availability of experienced experts or complete operational support teams (finance, HR, IT). It is typical for Emergency Response assignments to last about three months, but we have acted for clients in disaster scenarios for up to one year.
Our experts can usually be deployed within 72hrs. Our long-standing cooperation with NGOs and governmental organisations allows us to concentrate on logistics and needs in the case of emergency, so that we can be on location as soon as possible to help. All our experts are security trained, fully vaccinated and equipped to be able to start working immediately.
We have responded to nearly every major disaster since early 2010, including the Haiti earthquake in early 2010, the Ivory cost civil unrest and floods in South East Asia in 2011.
