Details of International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies Vacancy Positions & How to Apply.

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) is the world’s largest humanitarian organization, with 192 member National Societies. As part of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement, our work is guided by seven fundamental principles; humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality.

Organizational Context

The Secretariat’s headquarters is organized into four main Business Groups in Geneva, and five Business Groups in the field, namely; Americas (Panama City); Africa (Nairobi); Asia/Pacific (Kuala Lumpur); Europe (Budapest); Middle East and North Africa (Beirut). The Africa Regional Office is organized in Country Cluster Support Teams (CCST) covering the National Societies in Eastern Africa, Indian Ocean Islands and Djibouti, Southern Africa, West Coast, Sahel and Central Africa as well as Country Offices in Sudan, Republic of South Sudan, Somalia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Sierra Leone, Niger and Central Africa. The Southern Africa Country Cluster office supports 10 countries – Angola, South Africa, Malawi, Mozambique, Eswatini, Lesotho, Botswana, Zambia, Namibia and Zimbabwe. The 2018/2019 rain season was characterized by low rainfall and prolonged dry spells which negatively affected the agriculture sector, particularly crop and livestock production. The government of Zambia through the ZVAC undertook an assessment of the impact of the drought situation on different sectors during the month of May 2019. The food security situation is estimated to likely deteriorate during the lean season. The official report highlights that 1.7 million people are currently food insecure and this figure is projected to increase to 2.3 million between October 2019 and the end of the current consumption period, March 2020. Of the total population, 1,840,000 people are in crises (phase 3) and 410,000 people are in emergency (phase 4). Southern, Western, North western and parts of Eastern provinces are the most severely affected. The IFRC launched an Emergency Appeal seeking a total of 3,5 million Swiss francs to enable the Zambia Red Cross Society (ZRCS) to deliver assistance and support recovery of 57,064 people (9,510 households) for 18 months with a focus on the following areas: Livelihoods and Basic Needs, Health, Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), Protection Gender and Inclusion (PGI), Community Engagement and Accountability (CEA) and National Society Capacity Strengthening. Zambia, like many other countries in the African region, has not been spared from this pandemic with the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases as at 17th May, 2020 standing at 735 with 7 deaths since the confirmation of its first cases on 18th March 2020. According to the Ministry of Health, over 17,354 tests have since been administered across the country so far to keep track of the evolution of the pandemic and to curb its spread through early identification, quarantine and treatment of those infected. The pandemic has affected Lusaka, Central, Copperbelt Muchinga and North-western provinces Zambia Red Cross is also affected by the Covid -19 Pandemic and has been responding with the support of IFRC and its bilateral partners.
