Project Description

The DG European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO) has supported DCA financially with EUR 3.200.000,00 to address food insecurity and issues related to water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services for South Sudanese refugees in Gambella and IDPs in Bale.  


In the Jewi and Ngueyyiel refugee camps, the proposed action will provide appropriate sanitation facilities and both directly and indirectly ensure improved hygiene practices for the entire Jewi refugee camp and parts of Ngueyyiel refugee camp population, a total estimated population of 63,759 refugees. In addition, in the Tierkidi and Nguenyyiel camps, the proposed action will improve the food security and diet diversification through e-vouchers for fresh foods of most vulnerable households for a total of 5,700 HHs. Furthermore 3,030 most vulnerable conflict affected IDPs from the Somali and Oromoia region will duly receive multi purpose cash grants to meet food and immediate basic needs. 


DCA is grateful for its collaboration with:
