Saving the livelihoods of the newly-arrived IDPs in Zalingei area in Sudan

Sudan

Code du projet : OSRO/SUD/008/CHF

Pays : Sudan

Localisation : West Darfur state

Durée : 15/06/2010-15/09/2010

Partenaires  : State Ministry of Animal Resources, and two NGOs : Al-Baraka Society for Agricultural Services and Khairat Azum Charity Society

Donneur : Pooled Fund

Objectif  : To save both the livestock assets and the livelihoods of the newly-arrived IDPs in AlSalam IDP camp in Zalingei by stopping mortality and improving the health and production conditions of the animals through provision of livestock feeding, shelter and veterinary supplies.

Activités

1. 21 tonnes of groundnut cakes and 315 tonnes of green fodder provided to 3 000 households to feed 3 000 weakest animals.
2. Materials for constructing animal shelters procured (e.g. cement, wire, bamboo, etc.).
3. Six animal pens constructed to house 10 326 animals belonging to 4 352 households.
4. 10 362 animals owned by 4 352 households vaccinated and treated against common livestock diseases (e.g. haemorrhagic septicaemia, blackquarter, anthrax, PPR, sheep pox).
5. 10 IDPs trained and equipped as community animal health workers (CAHWs)

Impacts

1. Reduction in contagious diseases among livestock, resulting in fewer livestock lost and the improved health and productivity of the animals.
2. As more income is generated from healthy animals along with increased availability of protein, the targeted IDP families in the camp have improved their food security status.
3. Emergency animal feeding has improved the health and productivity of the targeted animals, as well as reducing their mortality and morbidity rates.
4. Dedicated animal shelters have provided a clean and healthy environment for the animals that allow for the easy provision of veterinary service.
5. Housing the animals separately from their owners greatly improved hygiene conditions at the camp.
6. Training of CAHWs helped to improve the health and productivity of the targeted animals through the improved delivery of vaccinations and curative treatments.
