Logistics Supply Chain Manager - BANGLADESH

Dhaka | Cox's Bazar

Outraged by the injustice faced by people with disabilities and vulnerable populations, we aspire to a world of solidarity and inclusion, enriched by our differences, where everyone can live in dignity. Handicap International is an independent and impartial aid and development organisation working in situations of poverty and exclusion, conflict and disaster. We work alongside disabled and vulnerable people to help meet their essential needs, improve their living conditions and promote respect for their dignity and fundamental rights.

For further information about the association:

Present in more than 55 countries, Handicap International is composed of 2 operational directions:

  • The Direction of Humanitarian Action (DAH)
  • The Direction of Development Action (DAD)


Handicap International (HI) has been working in Bangladesh since 1997, with a focus on creating sustainable changes in terms of ensuring rights and inclusion of people with disabilities in society. Currently HI Bangladesh has 4 sites: in Sitakunda, Chittagong; in Teknaf and Ukhiya in Cox’s Baazar; and in Kurigram. A coordination office will be set up in Cox’s Bazar town by September 2017. HI promotes an inclusive approach by focusing on access to services for all whenever possible rather than developing specific actions for people with disabilities. HI works not only with people with disabilities and other vulnerable populations, but also with their families, their communities, and the society. Since 2007 Handicap International in Bangladesh has been particularly active in the field of physical rehabilitation, Inclusion and Mainstreaming activities. Over the years, Handicap International has gained significant experiences in supporting the disability movement in the country especially by working with Disabled Peoples’ Organizations (DPOs). It has provided significant support to these organizations to become independently capable to actively and efficiently advocate for the rights of people with disabilities especially in the areas of Health, Education, Livelihoods, and Protection.

  • Provision of rehabilitation services (diversified per age and gender)
  • Provision of psychological support (first aid; specialized counseling by clinical psychologists)
  • Distributions of NFIs (shelter kits, hygiene kits, dignity kits, protection kits) and food items
  • Provision of psychosocial activities to deal with trauma (especially children and youth)
  • Referrals to specialized services addressing SGBV and dealing with other protection issues (mainstreaming disability, gender and age)
