Lack of access to safe water and inadequate sanitary conditions increase the risk of water-borne diseases, such as hepatitis A and shigellosis, and diseases transmitted by animals, such as leptospirosis.
Recently, 690 500l-capacity-steel water tanks have been handed over to flood-affected people in four communes Hai Ba, Hai Que, Hai Son and Hai Chanh of Hai Lang district, Quang Tri province. This support was a part of the AUD one million-aid for humanitarian response to people suffering from the impacts of the severe flooding in Thua Thien Hue, Quang Tri, and Quang Nam provinces.
The grant is managed by the consortium of World Vision, ADRA and CARE, which are members of Australian Humanitarian Partnership (AHP). The consortium has been working closely with the district level government authorities in improving access to safe water, promoting hygiene and sanitation, ensuring protection for beneficiaries and relief workers, and facilitating livelihood recovery to over 25,000 people.
This joint response is implemented for six months from December 2020 to May 2021 where most affected households will be assisted through an integrated package of interventions, including household kits, WASH kits, in-kind and cash transfer, and protection support. The proposed actions aim to provide assistance to those in the most urgent needs, in support of the local government response and in line with the Government request for relief assistance.
The response plan was based on the results of the joint Damage and Needs Assessment conducted between the government and humanitarian organizations, as well as national and sub-national government agencies. This response builds on the contribution from the initial humanitarian efforts back in October 2020.
After further assessment, the consortium noticed the needs to provide the affected people with financial assistance on top of other supports to help them meet their immediate needs and fast track the recovery process./.
