After a year and a half in Iraq working for MSF Switzerland, he renewed his commitment to SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL and carried out missions to Mauritania, South Sudan and Kenya/Somalia between 2012 and 2013.
He wishes to put his structural qualities and his field experience at the service of the Board in order to “contribute to the sustainability and the improvement of an organizational model that repeatedly manages to bring together rigour, creativity and independence within a shrinking humanitarian space”. Indeed, the philosophy of SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL is, above all, to
Grow acceptance among people through action and exchange without imposing at all costs an exogenous vision.
