Qualities of a Chair
We are currently supporting 3 refugee camps in Greece and just started a new ‘Dignity Centre’ service in Cyprus. We have devised a new 3 year growth and development plan to go where we are needed, set up vital services and distributions, and offer refugees the opportunity to rebuild their lives.
You will help us develop at this critical time to become a ‘nimble UNHCR’.
We have three committed and able Trustees with plans to recruit 2 new ones. We need an experienced Chair to provide leadership and direction.
