Faced with the risk of natural disasters and epidemics, the objective of this 10-month contingency project is to maintain a rapid response capacity to assist vulnerable families in the Grand'Anse department following an emergency. In the event of a crisis during the 2019 hurricane season, a rapid needs assessment in the water and sanitation sector will be conducted by ACTED. 8,000 people from the most vulnerable communities will receive a first response through the distribution of hygiene kits and drinking water supply. Emergency sanitary infrastructures (water points and mobile toilets) will be installed.
