Medicos del Mundo (MDM) Spain
Logistics Officer / Driver (National position)
Jericho, West Bank, Palestinian Territories
Position: Logistics Officer / Driver
Location: Jericho. Palestine
Contract duration: 1 year – 3 months probation
Full time: 40 hours per week
Starting Date: ASAP
There are four million Palestinians living in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt) (1.5 m in Gaza and 2.5 m in the West Bank) of which 49 per cent are below the age of 18 . The daily life of children is framed within the context of the Israeli occupation; the conflicts and military operations associated with occupation, the blockade of Gaza (since June 2007), stringent access and movement restrictions, and the existence and further construction of the separation barrier in the West Bank. This context creates vulnerabilities and inequities in the fulfilment of rights that are more pronounced in Gaza, Area C, Seam Zones, Hebron old city and East Jerusalem. While threats to life, security, and human dignity are daily realities throughout oPt in general, inequities are observed in those population groups that directly experience violence related to the occupation and the settlements and also, to a lesser extent, the Palestinian inter-factional divide. Children (girls and boys) are routinely affected by injury, displacement, disability, psychological distress and death.
Medicos del Mundo (MDM) Spain is present in Palestine since late 2006. During these years, the principal areas of intervention have been mental health and its integration into primary health care, carrying out specific actions to support the public health system in response to urgent or emergency phases caused by the blockade suffered in Gaza. Currently, MdM Spain is executing projects in the West Bank and Gaza.
