Handicap International recruits 01 Emergency Logistics Manager



Outraged by the injustice faced by people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, we aspire to a world of solidarity and inclusion, enriched by our differences, where everyone can live in dignity.
HI 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.

Preceded by days of heavy rains, the city of Beira was hit by IDAI cyclone in the night of Thursday 14th to Friday 15th March. Beira, the second largest city, is said to be 80% destroyed. 181,000 people and 43,000 households are still exposed to flooding, mainly in rural areas. National state of emergency has been declared on 18th March. Humanitarian needs include food security, WASH and shelter. So far, the death toll has reached 417 and more than 1,500 people have been injured. The situation is critical, with limited local capacities and restricted access. In these conditions, the humanitarian community fears a cholera epidemic.

HI is legally registered in Mozambique as a humanitarian and development INGO licensed to operate in Mozambique.
HI is present in Mozambique since 1986, implementing various projects in humanitarian and development contexts.

The Government of Mozambique issued a Red Alert on 13th March 2019 calling for urgent emergency humanitarian assistance to address the multifaceted impacts of the floods. The United Nations and humanitarian partners in Mozambique have appealed for US$40.8 million to provide critical emergency relief to the vulnerable populations who have been affected by Tropical Cyclone IDAI; this excludes funding requirements for infrastructural rehabilitation.  It is therefore essential to provide immediate assistance to persons affected by the disaster while simultaneously engaging the target communities for future resilience.

HI strategy of intervention consists in multisector response with emergency livelihood, ATLAS logistics platform as well as emergency protection services (awareness sessions and PSS support).

As a result of the natural disaster, communication channels are cut off, slowing down humanitarian distribution in the first phase and also the recovery of the country in the second phase. The project aims to complement local efforts to clear and reopen roads in coordination and support with local authorities. The project will be implemented with the contracting of local technical means (transport vehicles, equipment…) and local labour.
