Red Cross delegate heading to Pakistan

Red Cross Delegate Ted Itani

We just got news today that as the Red Cross continues to ramp up its assistance to people in Pakistan, Canadian Red Cross delegate, Ted Itani, is heading there to lead the International Red Cross Field Assessment and Coordination Team.

Having led the International Red Cross response efforts after the 2005 earthquakes in Pakistan, Ted’s going in with some rather intricate knowledge of the country and the challenges the people face in a disaster. His knowledge is a real asset to this disaster where over three million people have been affected. It’s the worst flooding in 80 years.

In his day-job, Ted works as a Humanitarian Advisor at the Pearson Peacekeeping centre. Prior to this he spent his 37-year career with the Canadian military and the UN serving in disaster hotspots around the world from Sarajevo to Iraq.
