Dato Dr Ahmad Faizal Perdaus, President, Mercy Malaysia
August 19th was World Humanitarian Day. We will be doing a series on shows over the next few weeks in collaboration with Mercy Malaysia – in the lead up to International Day of Peace on September 21st – to highlight the demands placed on humanitarian workers in responding to ever-evolving crises, inequities in aid distribution and challenges in financing. On this first episode, Mercy Malaysia President Dato Dr Ahmad Faizal Perdaus helps define what humanitarian action is.
Mohamed Hafiz Mohamed Amirrol, Head, Building Resilient Communities, Mercy Malaysia
When a natural disaster strikes, emergency response team will come in to provide medical aid and relief, but what happens after that? We speak to Ir. Mohamed Hafiz Mohamed Amirrol of Mercy Malaysia about the process of rebuilding communities emerging from a crisis – aka the “Triple Nexus” of humanitarian action, development and peace.
Continuing our series on Humanitarian Development in collaboration with Mercy Malaysia, Said Alhudzari, General Manager responsible for programme development and operations at Mercy, explains the dos and don’ts in a humanitarian response.
