I have been taught that if I see a person unconscious I should remove anything dangerous and check if they are breathing, clear the airway then check circulation by checking their pulse. I will then put them in the recovery position and wait for help to arrive.'
Sawera Saad is eight years old. She attends school in Pakistan’s Lower Dir region, an area where natural and man-made disasters are a real risk.
Everything they had was washed away; but RedR training means that next time floods come to Sindh, they won’t lose their homes.
Premi and her family live in Rojhi Kholi, a small village of 50 families in Pakistan’s Sindh Province. The Sindh is typically hot and dry, and when rain falls twice a year, it is just enough to irrigate the crops. Premi and her husband work are cotton farmers like most of the others in their village. Each month they earn just £19. Making ends meet is a real struggle, but they usually have enough to eat, because the land is fertile.
RedR-IHE has delivered a series of workshops on Sphere standards (minimum standards in disaster response) to officials and managers of humanitarian programmes in post-earthquake Pakistan. The workshops were held in coalition with The Sphere Project and the Humanitarian Accountability Project-International (HAP-I).
On Monday 9 January, RedR-IHE signed an agreement with the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR) to provide training and recruitment services in Pakistan. RedR-IHE will provide training for 80 camp management mobile teams, serving camps for 250,000 displaced people. The initial focus will be on international camp management standards, winterization, water and sanitation, Sphere standards and community involvement.
Responding to the devastating earthquake in South Asia that took place on Saturday 8 October, RedR-IHE is sending a team to carry out an emergency HR and training needs assessment in the region.
The assessment will identify gaps in humanitarian skills and expertise and will enable RedR-IHE to provide agencies with the aid workers and training support that they need to carry out emergency and long-term reconstruction work.
The worst affected area is Kashmir, but the quake has also affected northern India and Afghanistan.
