UN Volunteer professional profiles: Humanitarian Assistance and Emergency Relief

unv_syria_humanitarian_professional_profile_emergency_relief_volunteer
The UN Volunteer Associate Monitoring Officers serving within the UNMM are responsible for the essential task of making sure that the trucks going into Syria are carrying humanitarian supplies and nothing else. They compare aid cargos with consignments, liaise with the logistics officers of UN agencies and implementing partners, and actively seek information of United Nations-led cross-border movements.
