Addressing the water, sanitation and hygiene needs of conflict affected populations in Ninewa governorate

Through this 6 months project (July-December 2017), ACTED will support 11,100 IDPs living in Al-Salamiyah camp, Ninewa, with a comprehensive WASH response. 1,850 households will receive water storage kits alongside basic hygiene kits; 50% of the households will also receive baby kits. In addition, to improve sanitation facilities, emergency desludging and regular latrine desluding will take place, and where needed, ad hoc maintenance of sanitation facilities will be performed. Solid waste management, garbage collection and disposal will also be provided both at the household and the community level. Finally, through a CfW scheme, IDPs living in the camp will be trained in hygiene promotion topics and techniques and will conduct 8 hygiene promotion sessions for the broader camp community. In order to increase community consultation and accountability and coordinate WASH activities in the camp, a WASH committee will be established.
