Earthquake in Chile
Sixth largest earthquake ever to be recorded
My task was to organize a productive line for the bags.
DRT: Disaster Response Team
Team of DHL volunteer, specializing in logistically aid after a natural disaster.
With the IMBA experience I expect to be trained in:
After the first two days I took on a new and bigger responsibility. I went with the DRT to Concepcion, one of the most affected cities and central to the operation for the surrounding areas that were affected.
February 27, 2010
Earthquake triggered a tsunami
1,135 tonnes of humanitarian aid from around the world
Aid left in the airport in pallets and boxes
The influx of goods created a bigger problem, interfering with airport work
I was a volunteer with the DRT to assist my country and the people in need.
Using my mind was the best way I knew I could help.
Make bags with foods and basic rations for a family for a week.
Bag needed to be packed, easy to carry and weigh under 15 kg.
After two days, we produced more than 2,700 bags, sorting around four tons of humanitarian aid.
We also helped to clear a big part of the airport previously occupied by the goods.
With this responsibility, I gathered the team to listen to the advice and direct them to the most efficient way of executing it
After each 30 mins of work, I met the team and looked for improvements
Furthermore, I led policeman and the military in working with us on bag production
Role in DRT
I was incorporated as an official DRT member. I started training volunteers from around South America and Chile
Epicenter 400 km from Santiago affected an area of more than one thousand kms
We packed the bags as quickly as possible in order to deliver them to those desperately in need of humanitarian aid
