HI recruits 01 MHPSS Technical Coordinator


Outraged at the injustice faced by people with disabilities and by vulnerable populations, we aspire to a world of solidarity and inclusion, enriched by our differences, where everyone can live in dignity.
Humanity and Inclusion is an international, independent and impartial non-profit organisation that intervenes in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. Working alongside people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, HI takes action and takes notice, to meet their basic needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.

The socioeconomic crisis in Venezuela continued to deteriorate throughout 2018, leading to further collapse of services, deterioration of health facilities, food security, and nutrition among the population, and one of the biggest mass displacements in South America’s history. According to UNHCR at least 2.5 million Venezuelans have left the country since 2014, though other sources estimate that this figure could exceed 4 million, including nearly 2 million in Colombia [1]. The fallouts of the crisis across the region have increased proportionally: 3.4 million migrants/refugees are registered in neighboring countries (Colombia, Peru, Ecuador, Brazil and other Latin-American and Caribbean countries), as well as in the US and in Europe, according to UNHCR-IOM [2].

The economic crisis is amplified by the deepening political crisis. Since 23 January 2019, the situation in Venezuela has entered into a more acute phase of the crisis, following the self-proclamation of the President of the National Assembly as Interim President and the introduction of new economic sanctions by the US. The Venezuelan government largely denies the scale of humanitarian needs and restricts access for international humanitarian organizations, and blocked the entry of US humanitarian aid in February 2019, which exacerbated the situation acknowledging that aid could be an instrument for regime change.


Handicap International intends to respond by implementing an intervention through local partners, with the aim to improve the living conditions of the most vulnerable Venezuelan, including persons with disabilities, by ensuring access to inclusive and quality services & livelihoods through a multi-sectoral response. The response will include inclusive humanitarian action; rehabilitation and MHPSS support as well as food distribution.
