HIFA seeks a Global Supporting Organisation Coordinator (3) Deadline extended to 12 August

7 August, 2022

Dear HIFA colleagues,

It has come to my attention that there was a technical problem with HIFA on the day that this message was originally sent, which means that some HIFA members will not have received it. I am therefore sending it again (below) with an extended deadline of 12 August.
