Take heart, we are only human and help each other, whether in an emergency or on a medical service. We stick together and support each other!

Support and logistics team
In the event of a disaster, our support and logistics team is responsible for providing food and refreshments for people and helpers. Ideally, you have a catering qualification or are even a chef? We need you! Together with our team, you would plan and execute meals and dishes. Other helpers will take care of everything else that needs to be provided. Do you enjoy working in the field kitchen and working in large quantities? Here's your chance.
