The aid organizations are working together to deliver life-saving aid and essential services. The organizations each bring their own expertise to the table and Plan International is coordinating the emergency aid. This consists of:
- Food security and livelihoods: Delivery of vegetable seeds, hoes, and food packages, amongst others, to ensure that people are able to meet their basic food needs. We also make sure people are provided with the resources needed to protect and start rebuilding their livelihoods, such as monthly cash assistance and food vouchers.
- Shelter and non-food items: Aid with safe shelters and non-food items. Distribution of survival and family kits to internally displaced people. These kits contain the necessities for shelter including bedding equipment, kitchen utensils, and clothing.
- Water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH): Ensuring access to safe and sufficient drinking water, improved sanitation facilities, and the promotion of hygiene by, for example, distributing soap.
- Protection and Information: Refugees are informed of other available services in the area that they are in, including education, food, and family reunification services. We make sure that children who have been separated from their family are either reunited or are given alternative care, and that they are given the support that they need. We also provide information about the prevention of and response to sexual and gender-based violence in emergencies.
