1. Unless your staff are doing direct response, they likely have no business case for being in country. If the business case is not there, take them out, no matter what they say. it should be a HQ decision based on need. normal work will not resume any time soon and the longer the response takes, the more angry the population can get. right now they are focused on digging and cleaning. in a week-two that will be done and they will start asking the why questions.
  2. Pay your staff salaries in advance if you can so they can buy what they need and possibly move to safe places where they can stay.
  3. Take a survey of who has a safe place to stay in the city (local staff) and review with your funder what help you can provide in terms of helping them rebuild houses, find shelter, relocate family members to somewhere else, etc.
  4. Even expats who say they were not impacted this, likely were. so make them all go for psych-social support when they get out. Quakes have a way of rattling the brain (and body). keep all emails from staff in the field in a separate folder just in case they change their mind later, you want records of all comms.
  5. If you need psych-social support in country, try going through UN SLT or the big NGOs. Konterra Group may deploy on behalf of USAID, so check with AID if those resources can be made open to your staff as well. and of course. These direct response efforts to staff can take a very long time.
