Jebel Mara WASH and Health Improvement Project

Progetto concluso

The humanitarian operation in Sudan is one of the largest in the world. According to the 2015 Humanitarian response Plan, 5.4 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance in different parts of the country, particularly in Darfur, South-Kordofan and Blue Nile State. In Darfur, fighting in 2014 has led to the displacement of 430’000 persons. That is more than in any single year since the height of the conflict in 2004. This phase of the project will be implemented in the wider region of Jebel Mara in Central Darfur. The current phase of the project runs for 19 months and will further build the capacity of IDPs, Host Communities and Public Institutions in the fields of WASH and Basic Health Services.

Contesto

Gruppi target

78’000 conflict affected persons in the Jebel Mara region (IDP’s, host community, and nomads). Amongst them 55% are females.

Effetti a medio termine

Sustainable access to WASH and Health Services through an integrated community development approach. Trained Water Users Committees will manage the water schemes and the health facilities will be handed over to the State Ministry of Health.
