The Tigray Conflict – David Ross (Ottawa) – October 26, 2021

David Ross has just returned to Canada from northern Ethiopia where he worked from March until September as an access and civil-military coordination officer. Contracted by RedR Australia to the United Nations  Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), David facilitated humanitarian access in Tigray Region, an area severely disrupted by conflict since November 2020. The emergency is vast, complex, and often dangerous. Moreover, the pressures caused by the several hundred thousand people who have flooded into cities and internally displaced person camps, continue to be immense. David  worked alongside many hard-working, innovative and committed humanitarians who made the tour of duty all the more fulfilling.

2020.07.04 Post June Bash Junta Announcement

July 4, 2020

The Whiff’s Junta would like to provide you with a brief update of the virtual June Bash held on June 23, using the Zoom platform. Our June Bash experiment was extremely successful! Members who participated gave high marks to the event and the Zoom method of communication. The evening was highlighted by having several breakout sessions. This provided a unique opportunity for a number of participants to communicate freely their ideas one with the other in a relaxed atmosphere, with all observations and ideas then shared with everyone participating in the evening. I might add, the “open bar” concept was popular and contributed to the relaxed evening. 

The Junta has lined up an exciting list of speakers for our Fall meetings. There is a significant possibility that these meetings will need to be held on a virtual basis. Therefore, prior to the commencement of our Fall campaign, the Whiff technologists will be offering the opportunity to Whiffers to update their technology skills in order to utilize the Zoom platform. 
 
We will be communicating with you at the end of August. In the meantime, your Junta wishes you a safe and healthy Summer. We look forward to seeing all of you, either physically or virtually, in the Fall.
