Somalia: PSS Technical Advisor - Somaliland

NGO/UN Job Vacancy



Organization: Handicap International
Country: Somalia
Closing date: 10 Aug 2017

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. Handicap International is an independent and impartial aid and development organisation working in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. We work alongside disabled and vulnerable people to help meet their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.

For further information about the association: http://ift.tt/uP0MBh

Present in more than 55 countries, Handicap International is composed of 2 operational directions:

MISSION CONTEXT

Handicap International is opening the position of a psychosocial support technical advisor in Somaliland in order to respond to the current crisis affecting the Horn of Africa region. In Somaliland and Puntland, the severe drought is affecting more than 240,000 people and more than 5 million people are living in areas currently experiencing drought. The Government of Somaliland declared drought on August 10, 2015 and the failure of rainfall in two consecutive (GU) seasons has resulted in acute shortage of water for farming, livestock and human consumption. These conditions have triggered a massive shortage of food, fodder, rapidly drying pasture and water. Consequently, malnutrition has increased among infants, children, elderly persons, persons with disabilities, women- especially pregnant and lactating mothers. Several humanitarian organizations coordinated by the Somaliland National Drought Committee (NDC) are currently scaling up their emergency response. The response focuses on basic needs - primarily around food security and WASH. However, based on Handicap International experience, the basic needs response does not include vulnerable persons/groups, not only of persons with disabilities but of those individuals, particularly children, who experience severe acute malnutrition which can result in developmental delays, as well as those that develop psycho-social trauma as a result of the emergency and related trauma. HI recently approached donors with a proposition of project in Somaliland consisting in: a)conducting a comprehensive needs assessment on the impacts of the drought on vulnerable persons/groups b)intervening in specific emergency response components based on HI’s expertise (e.g. stimulation and physical therapy for children with severe acute malnutrition, psychosocial support etc.)
