International Medical Corps preparing to deploy assessment team to South Ossetia

by Jon Thompson on August 8, 2008

Late word out of Santa Monica is that the International Medical Corps is preparing to deploy an assessment team to the conflict zone in South Ossetia.  No word on when they will arrive but it looks like they’ll be there soon.  Anyone interested in what IMC is up to should check out their website for the latest news and job opportunities.  If you want to support their work with a donation you can click here.

No word on the other organizations.  I hope to have more tomorrow.  In the mean time check out our Humanitarian Job Info page for a partial list of aid organizations currently working around the world and visit Reuters AlertNet and ReliefWeb for the latest news and information about the war in South Ossetia.

[Full disclosure – While I am ex-IMC I am happy to post any organization’s information.)

I’ll post on this shortly. Tomorrow we’ll start seeing all the press releases with numbers. Right now it is mostly explo team members until financing is locked in.
