My job is to ensure delivery of COVID vaccines and related supplies from suppliers, or from our main hubs in Copenhagen, Dubai, Panama City and Shanghai, to the countries whether by air, sea and road. The amount of coordination required to fast track the shipments was a huge challenge, especially if you bear in mind that the vaccines were ready in Mumbai and the syringes were in our hub in Dubai - and we had a window of two to three days to make the delivery happen. It then stopped over in Dubai to uplift the syringes before loading vaccines and syringes on another flight to Ghana. All this took coordination with the vaccine suppliers, logistics companies, airlines and the country office to make it happen within 72 hours, which was a great achievement. The supplier fast-tracked their timelines, the airlines came up with a solution, and the freight forwarder even donated the flight for free to UNICEF. We have three main challenges. First, we will be facing an extreme supply availability constraint at least during the first months. Second, the number of countries involved, as there are over countries relying on UNICEF to procure and deliver vaccines, syringes and other related supplies to them. This is made more challenging because of the reduction in airfreight capacity due to COVID, and what adds even more to the challenge is that vaccines require cold chain during transport and storage which means following very strict regulations about how much time they can be transit and the temperature range that at which they must be kept at all times.

I also felt like I could never be a good wife. Ask her right out if she is at all interested in leaving TSCC. With minimal support on my side and going against everything I had grown up learning, I had to trust my relationship with God. I disagree with the doctrines and practices of the LDS church. Skrylle challenge. She went ahead a married a non member.
