•    Engineers
•    Environmentalist
•    Technicians
•    Emergency relief staff

They are so much in demand in such countries. If you do not have the above skills then it’s most likely you have to pay for your own expenses. The organization will not cover it for you.


Usually, all the organizations prefer to work with local people because you will never know that how long the project they have started will continue. A person from abroad might want to leave after few months or years while the project would still be ongoing.
