Being prepared - finding and training relief workers

Waterlines 15(1): 7-9
Being prepared - finding and training relief workers
The importance of preparing relief workers through thorough training allowing them to contribute effectively to aid programmes is discussed. Sources of relief workers are examined as used by NGOs and other agencies. To facilitate rapid deployment of temporary relief staff registers of relief workers have been established, so that there exists a pool of relief workers who may be called on when needed, but who are not paid in the interim.
