The International Rescue Committee is responding to the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people to survive and rebuild their lives. The organization was founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the International Rescue Committee offers lifesaving care and life-changing help to people affected by war or disaster. At work today in over 40 countries and 22 U.S. cities, we restore safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to endure. The International Rescue Committee leads the way from harm to home.

The International Rescue Committee seeking for a first aid consultant that will be trained on occupational hazards, injuries or illness at workplace remains one of the major safety and security threat to International Rescue Committee staff deployed to a various location in various capacities either as support staff or direct program implementation. Such hazards or injuries can occur at any time and if not efficiently managed can have a catastrophic impact.

The training will equip all cadres of staff drawn from the Base offices in Monguno, Gwoza, and Maiduguri with the basic first aid skills. Each office will thus be able to constantly put one trained staff on standby on a weekly rotational basis as duty first Aider.
