Site Coordinators – A Drop in the Ocean

A Drop in the Ocean (Dråpen i Havet) is a Norwegian humanitarian organisation which provides immediate and direct aid to people fleeing from their home countries. The organisation’s goal is to provide support for forcibly displaced people, as well as to spread the word about the current situation for refugees and migrants. Where appropriate, our main focus is helping children and their mothers. A Drop in the Ocean coordinates volunteer workers, and collects and distributes the necessary resources, equipment and financial support to provide immediate help when and where it is needed.

Because the Covid-19 situation made us withdraw from our locations with many international field workers in March, we have been present with a small team of coordinators on the Greek mainland. We are now in the process of planning our re-entry to support displaced people stuck in Greece, and are seeking qualified site coordinators to some of our locations in Greece. Our site coordinators reports to our Operations Coordinator Greece based in Greece.
