Dear project leaders,
Due to the current situation worldwide caused by the Covid-19 outbreak. Recruitment, training and deployment of EU Aid Volunteers have been suspended for the time being.
We strongly encourage those organisations with EUAV volunteers currently active on the field despite the ongoing Covid pandemic, to take all necessary additional measures to ensure their safety and security. We are monitoring the evolution of the pandemic in Europe and beyond and we invite organizations to do the same and to constantly reassess the security of their volunteers on the field, eventually readjusting evacuation plans and safety and security measures according to the needs.
We are in contact with DG ECHO colleagues in case of eventual security issues.
Thank you for your vigilance and your cooperation.
We will resume our activities as soon as the situation allows; hopefully soon.
The EU Aid Volunteers team.
