Médecins du Monde recruits 01 Grants & MEAL manager Syria (M/F) – Jordan
For more than 30 years, Médecins du Monde, a campaigning medical organisation committed to international solidarity, has been caring for the most vulnerable populations at home and abroad. It has continued to highlight obstacles that exist in accessing health care and has secured sustainable improvements in health-for-all policies.
Those working for this independent organisation do not solely dispense care and treatment but condemn violations of human dignity and rights and fight to improve matters for populations living in precarious situations.
MdM currently works in more than 35 countries across all continents where it focuses on 5 priority areas: emergency and crisis, sexual and reproductive health, harm reduction, migrants and displaced populations (health rights), health and environment.
Since the beginning of the war in 2011, violence against the civilian Syrian population has only intensified and become more complex, with no political solution emerging.
The humanitarian situation remains extremely tenuous throughout the country. People are suffering from the lack of access to healthcare facilities, to water and food, and there is an urgent need for sanitation, shelter etc.
