During the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic HELP Logistics continues to support one of our strategic partners in Asia – World Vision International (WVI) – in facilitating a series of online webinars focusing on humanitarian supply chains.
The sessions have been delivered to different WVI country offices such as Laos, Myanmar, and Sri Lanka with a focus on the importance of supply chain management in humanitarian operations. Along with our university partners we have delivered on topics such as logistics management, warehouse and inventory management, supply chain planning, and supplier engagement. Each online session included interactive guest lectures, together with a practical case study as well as group discussions.
This is one of our initiatives to upskill personnel and extend capabilities amidst the pandemic COVID-19. Investing in human resource capacity building in humanitarian logistics management will assist WVI in enhancing the effectiveness of relief assistance delivery to beneficiaries.
HELP Logistics would also like to thank Ruth Banomyong of Thammasat University, Anand Gurumurthy of Indian Institute of Management, and Nirpa Dhami of World Vision Regional Asia Pacific for co-facilitating the training.
