Description : Executives from six organisations spent a week in remote parts of South Sudan where they visited doctors who carry out war surgery and watched as thousands of residents gathered for food assistance.
The visit by the Corporate Support Group (CSG), the second-ever such visit hosted by ICRC, allowed partners in the business world to understand how the organization provides much needed assistance to the South Sudanese and to look into potential avenues for collaboration. The first CSG visit took place last year in Jordan. This year, the participating CSG companies and foundations were ABB, Avina Stiftung, Lombard Odier and Novartis. In addition, Nespresso and the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) also joined the group.
ICRC Vice-President Christine Beerli, who led the five-day visit, said the ICRC sees great importance in working closely with the private sector so the organization can learn new technologies and best practices. "We think it's extremely important to show to our corporate partners a comprehensive operation such as South Sudan, and of course it is important to work more closely with the private sector because we can learn from each other," Beerli said.
