CHF-DMA-0489-034 "To increase and sustain the access of IDP and disaster-affected populations in Central South zone to safe water, appropriate sanitation facilities and hygiene promotion" - 3,270,000$

For nearly two decades now, the Central Southern part of Somalia has been plagued by widespread violence, endemic poverty and adverse climatic conditions such as recurrent chronic droughts and seasonal floods which have generated a complex emergency. The challenge of access to safe water and deteriorating sanitation and hygiene conditions has persisted. Disease outbreaks increase during the rainy seasons/ floods when waste is swept into water sources while poorly maintained latrines flood leading to contamination of water sources in the process. Lack of safe drinking water, sanitation and hygiene has led to increased incidences of waterborne diseases and reduced health situation of the affected communities.

Malnutrition is believed to be a common partial manifestation of health problems that can be directly linked to lack of access to safe drinking water as Acute Watery Diarrhoea (AWD) keeps recurring and is a major contributor to high levels of acute malnutrition reported in the target districts. Internally displaced persons (IDPs), more than 350,000 of which are in Afgooye corridor, are the most affected population by this chronic and complex humanitarian situation.

Objective:  To increase and sustain the access of IDP and disaster-affected populations to safe water, appropriate sanitation facilities and hygiene promotion

Main Outcomes:

  • Approx. 670,000 people will have increased and sustained access to safe water, reducing the likelihood of large scale outbreaks of AWD/Cholera through the construction, rehabilitation, operation and maintenance, and chlorination of water systems      
  • Approx 300,000 IDPs and HE will benefit from support to clean-up campaigns and improvements in environmental sanitation. Approx.6,790 IDPs and HE will have adequate access to sanitation facilities through the construction of IDP latrines leading to an improvement in the sanitary environment and environmental health, reducing the pollution pathway  
  • Approx. 500,000 IDPs and HE will have access to effective hygiene promotion, enabling them to understand and implement key hygiene promotion practices (e.g. effective hand washing and safe water storage) and approx. 70,000 IDPs and HE will receive soap to reduce the risk of diarrhoeal diseases and jerry cans for safe water storage
