Présentation
The IDP population in Puntland has increased from 100,000 to 139,000 between December 2010 and February 2011 (UNHCR Feb 2011) with 53% female and 47% male. High incidence of diarrhoeal diseases amongst IDPs and destitute households as reported at 15.4% and 39.4% in Galkayo and Bossaso respectively affects particularly the children U5, and is attributed partly to poor sanitation and hygiene, and use of contaminated water supplies (FSNAU Dec 2010). Lack of income earning opportunities has rendered many IDP families dependant on external assistance and resulting to negative coping mechanisms such as reducing on the number of meals per day (UNHCR Dec 2010). Failure of Deyr ‘10/’11 rains has caused a rise of prices of local cereal affecting mainly the IDPs and poor urban households who rely largely on market purchase for food. The target population is in a critical situation requiring immediate intervention to save lives, and prevent further slide into destitution.
This action aims to increase sustainable access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation services along with creating some income earning opportunities for most vulnerable IDPs and host communities, and in particular women and children in the target locations. The intervention targets the most vulnerable IDP and host community households, increasing access to basic needs, WASH services and enhancing their resilience. Activities include : water access through vouchers, garbage collection through cash for work, installation of hand pumps on wells, drilling of a borehole, construction of storage tanks, construction of latrines, hygiene promotion (including distribution of soap, water filters and jerry cans) and capacity building of WES, settlement committees and local authorities.
