Hygiene and inclusion of vulnerable groups is on the agenda in the emergency response in Nepal.
Mission East and partners do follow-ups on hygiene education in the remote villages, while materials for more than 1,800 latrines has been distributed so far. The construction of latrines secures accessibility for elders, women, children and people with disabilities. Furthermore, Mission East’s Gender and Social Inclusion Specialist has provided training for staff in how to include these vulnerable groups.
2014 has been a year of disasters; landslides in Afghanistan, flooding in Nepal and a major humanitarian crisis in Iraq. Mission East has responded to these disasters on different scales but with a constant focus on providing immediate and efficient response to the most vulnerable.
