Agreement Date:

Description:
March 2022 - An estimated 8.4 million people across South Sudan are in need of humanitarian assistance and protection as a result of armed conflict, food insecurity, malnutrition, economic decline and disease. Approximately 1.6 million people are internally displaced within South Sudan and almost 2.2 million South Sudanese have sought protection in neighbouring countries. An estimated 7.2 million people are currently severely food insecure, with malnutrition rates over emergency thresholds. Water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) needs remain extremely high in South Sudan, impacting public health outcomes. With GAC’s support, Oxfam Canada is providing WASH and protection assistance for up to 81,450 conflict-affected people in Akobo East County and General Pibor Administrative Area (GPAA). Project activities include: (1) repairing and rehabilitating boreholes and supporting household water treatment and storage; (2) repairing and rehabilitating existing latrines in health facilities and schools and supporting the construction of gender-sensitive and climate smart latrines at the household level; (3) conducting mass hygiene and sanitation campaigns, as well as distributing WASH-related items; (4) supporting protection committees and providing cash for at-risk individuals; and (5) creating safe spaces with activities and services for women, girls and boys.
Organization:
Global Affairs Canada
Expected Results:

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased and equitable use of safe, accessible, gender-responsive WASH services for targeted host and displaced communities in the GPAA and Akobo counties; and (2) enhanced use of lifesaving, safe, gender-sensitive and rights-based protection and sexual and gender-based violence services for vulnerable women, men, girls and boys in targeted host and displaced communities in GPAA and Akobo counties.

The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated and human dignity maintained in the targeted regions.
