United Nations CERF aids victims of floods and mudslides in Eastern Uganda
With funding from the United Nations Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF), IOM Uganda is implementing a project worth USD 818,000 in emergency relief for over 120,000 people affected by floods in Uganda.
European Union, CERF aid Refugees and Host communities
In early 2020, IOM completed major projects in Kyaka II settlement in Kyegegwa district and Palorinya settlement in the new district of Obongi. The projects were funded by the European Commission's Directorate of Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (DG-ECHO) and CERF. In both settlements, the projects major piped water systems and sanitation and hygiene facilities.
Over the last five years, IOM's work in refugee settlements has centred on four pillars:
● Construction of latrines and other facilities (e.g. placenta pits, incinerators) for schools and hospitals, where they are used by both refugees and host communities.
● For households, refugees get the tools and material to construct their own latrines, with special assistance for vulnerable refugees like single mothers and the elderly.
● Water facilities: We construct/rehabilitate boreholes, piped water systems, rainwater-harvesting systems and other mechanisms to help refugees and host communities access clean and safe water.
● IOM works closely with Government of Uganda (Central and local Government authorities), civil society and refugees and host communities.
