Titre : Vulnerable drought and displacement-affected populations in Elberde district of Bakool region, disaggregated by sex have increased equal temporary and sustained access to reliable safe water, appropriate sanitation and hygiene services – Somalia

Pays /Région : Somalie

Code projet : SOM-17/3485/SA1/WASH/NGO/4653

Présentation
As the drought intensives through out Somalia, water becomes an essential and very expensive commodity to the pastoralists, agro-pastoralists as well as the vulnerable IDPs in Elberde district. Under this project, HRDO proposes to improve temporary and sustainable access to safe water, sanitation facilities and promote good hygiene practices in an effort to improve the health status of 12,500 drought affected pastoral communities and internally displaced men, women, boys and girls at 5 rural villages in Elberde district of Bakool region. Limited access to safe and adequate water and sanitation facilities coupled with poor hygiene knowledge and practices put these communities at risk to the prolonged drought and waterborne diseases. Apart from the ongoing health and nutrition activities, which HRDO is implementing in the region, HRDO would like to implement WASH services as an integration project through : (1) Distribution of emergency and temporary safe water through water voucher system to 9,920 people from the drought affected communities and internal displaced populations in five villages (Qurac joomo, Elmagaad, Abesale,Fikta and Baadikeen) of Elberde district in a period of 60 days ; (2) As an exit strategy, HRDO will rehabilitate three shallow wells with animal troughs to 3 targeted villages (Abeesaale, Qurac joomo, El magan) ; (3) Capacity building training will be given to WASH committees, well operators and community members ; (4) HRDO will construct 4 gender sensitive twin block latrines with hand washing basin at two MCHs in quracjoomo and El magan ( 2-twin latrines per each MCH) ; (5) HRDO will distribute 50 sanitation kits to 5 targeted villages (10 kit/village) to carry out routine campaigns on sanitation and improve the environmental sanitation of the villages ; and (6) HRDO will carry out comprehensive hygiene promotion activities to the targeted 5 villages participating around 12,600 persons. During HP activities HRDO will distribute hygiene promotion kits to 1,000 people, who are at risk of AWD/cholera. The proposed response took into consideration the impact of the conflict on women, and children in terms of access to the WASH services.
