TaiwanICDF and ACF Sign Volunteer Dispatch Agreement to Bring Taiwanese Volunteers’ Engagement in International Humanitarian Aid

TaiwanICDF and ACF Sign Volunteer Dispatch Agreement to Bring Taiwanese Volunteers’ Engagement in International Humanitarian Aid

The International Cooperation and Development Fund (TaiwanICDF) and Action against Hunger (Action Contre La Faim, ACF) commenced their first cooperative project—Improvement of Solid Waste Management for Host Communities and Syrian Refugees in Azraq Town—in Jordan in December 2016. To further strengthen the collaboration between the TaiwanICDF and ACF, the two organizations signed a Volunteer Dispatch Agreement this year. Under the agreement, the TaiwanICDF can recruit and dispatch Taiwanese volunteers with the relevant skills to assist in all future humanitarian projects jointly implemented by the two organizations.

As an example, for the two-year Improvement of Solid Waste Management for Host Communities and Syrian Refugees in Azraq Town Project, the TaiwanICDF will recruit two volunteers to serve in ACF Jordan Office for three months to assist in project implementation. This agreement will not only provide Taiwanese volunteers with the opportunity to work and gain experience with a prestigious international non-governmental organization, but also obtain insight from the front line on the implementation of humanitarian assistance projects. Following this model, the TaiwanICDF could dispatch volunteers for all future cooperative projects of the two organizations according to the needs of the designated countries.

Since 1996, Taiwanese volunteers have served with the TaiwanICDF Overseas Volunteers Service, offering assistance or participating in humanitarian aid projects in various countries. To date, a total of 697 volunteers have participated in the TaiwanICDF Overseas Volunteers Service.
