Within the multi-sectoral response commencing in September 2022, partners rehabilitate community-level water systems, support their ongoing maintenance and operations, and provide training on water conservation and hygiene-related topics. Medair will also re-equip for primary healthcare centers in areas of acute need, provide capacity building for health workers on topics such as mhGap (Mental Health Gap Action Programme) and nutrition, and support community health programs that raise awareness and facilitate access to services. SSSD will provide mental health and psychosocial support via mobile teams and static centers. Together, Medair, SSSD, and ZOA aim to preserve lives and relieve suffering by ensuring safe and meaningful access to basic services within communities affected by conflict and economic deterioration.
