Voices of Welthungerhilfe
Alex Maina, System Developer, Liberia
“I worked voluntarily for different organisations in a variety of roles, including in IT. This eventually led me to a position as Data Officer in the Welthungerhilfe project office in Makindu. Over time, there were more duties and a move to the Kenyan country office in Nairobi. The thing I most like about my job: Being able to make a positive change in the lives of other people. There is nothing more fulfilling than the smiling face of a beneficiary or a colleague. It is a priceless feeling!”
Today Alex Maina works for Welthungerhilfe in Liberia.
Hanna Maass, Expert Project Coordination
Here at Welthungerhilfe, I feel that we all constantly learn from each other in an open and enabling work environment. The most interesting moments occur when you visit project regions. It is amazing to experience how our projects are put into practice in often very difficult contexts, and how the teams on the ground try to overcome the everyday challenges in order to make a positive impact. I also appreciate the opportunity to take part in in-house trainings, workshops and language courses.
Annalisa Lombardo, Country Director, Haiti
I joined Welthungerhilfe in 2018, taking over the very challenging position of Country Director in Haiti. I have the responsibility to develop and manage an impact-oriented country program with the ambitious goal of helping Haitian households to achieve their right to a dignified life free from hunger and poverty. In a nutshell, this captures exactly what I am passionate about: human rights and social justice – and this beautiful yet torn Caribbean island with its vibrant people, ancient spirituality and colorful art.
Balasubramaniam Ramasubba, Finance Expert, Bangladesh
I have been working for Welthungerhilfe for 15 years and in various countries. I am currently responsible for finances and logistics in a camp for Rohingya families who were forced to flee from their home country. For me, Welthungerhilfe is above all an organization that is transparent and meets its accountability obligations. It supports its employees so that they can develop skills and build capacity on the ground. Welthungerhilfe is like a university where everyone can learn about innovative ideas and other cultures. I am proud to work for this organization.
Joseph Ogayo, Project Manager, Sudan
Currently, I am leading a dedicated and committed team in North Darfur, where we support internally displaced people and vulnerable rural populations with food and cash. We also work on the prevention and treatment of malnutrition and promote home gardens, which include vertical gardens, for example. We focus on empowering vulnerable families to sustainably produce their own nutritious food. I am motivated and honored to be working with a respected organization like Welthungerhilfe and have been doing so for 13 years. I strongly believe that with simple innovative solutions, we are on the right path to 'One Planet – Zero Hunger'.
