In response to the crisis linked to the influx of Central African refugees in the DRC, this project aims to provide assistance to Central African refugees and host populations in North and South Ubangi and Bas Uélé. In order to improve the living conditions of vulnerable populations, ACTED will provide a multisectoral response to promote their access to water, hygiene and sanitation services and infrastructures. ACTED plans the distribution of 150 hygiene kits, the construction of 3 water points and 180 latrines as well as the animation of WASH sensitization activities. This project also includes a protection component which aims at setting up mechanisms for the prevention and management of cases of Gender Based Sexual Violence (GBV). In this framework, ACTED will organize the psychosocial follow-up of the victims, set up IGAs for the survivors, strengthen the protection capacities of the communities through sensitization sessions and training. In total, 11,240 beneficiaries will be reached by the project.
