Titre : Provision of sustained access to safe water, appropriate sanitation and good hygiene practice for communities in Warsheikh, Middle shabelle region – Somalia

Contexte
An estimated 218,000 children under five are acutely malnourished and require emergency nutrition support, access to clean water and better hygiene (FSNAU December 2014). Furthermore, 44,000 children are severely malnourished and are at risk of death if they do not receive urgent assistance. Warsheikh is a small coastal town in Middle Shabelle Region approximately 62 KM north-west of Mogadishu with an estimated population of 136,000 people (UNDP, 2005), however, the local authority estimates a population of more than 200,000 persons. Until recently, the town has been under control of Al-Shabaab and there have been very limited interventions for basic services, Communities are in food security emergency and crisis with urgent needs for increased access to basic services such as food, and water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH). AMISOM and the Somali National Armed Forces (SNAF) took control of Warsheikh in mid-March 2014, when it became accessible for humanitarian actors to deliver assistance. IOM’s implementing partner has been able to work in the area low profile with the help of OCHA funded projects but major assistance has been absent. Therefore the aim of this project is to improve access to safe water, sanitation facilities and good hygiene practices to reduce the risk of acute watery diarrhea (AWD),
