Chris' Trip to Turkey
Organized by: Chris Stadler
I will be interning with the German humanitarian aid organization, Welthungerhilfe (WHH) in Gaziantep, Turkey for the next 6 months (September-February). WHH is a preeminent German emergency relief organization that specializes in aid delivery for people affected by natural disasters and conflicts worldwide. Below is WHH’s webpage where you can learn more about the projects it is currently overseeing in the Middle East: http://welthungerhilfe.org.tr/whh-turkey/
This is an incredible opportunity for me to get real world experience with an aid organization servicing refugee populations in Turkey, Syria, and Northern Iraq. I will be interning in the Program Development Unit where I will be writing grants, meeting with donors, and even assisting in the development of future aid projects. Safety for all interns and staff-members is a huge priority at WHH. Know that I will be well away from any active conflict zone and will be working at the regional office under the supervision of the regional director.
Please consider giving to help me realize this opportunity and take an important step towards a career in humanitarian affairs. Please also feel free to share this web page with your friends or colleagues who might be interested helping.
If you have any questions or thoughts, please feel free to contact me separately.
