Sudan: Help for displaced people
Conflict in the Sudan
Water, sanitation and hygiene
A sum of $452,562 CAD was allocated to Oxfam Canada to meet the needs of 20,000 people displaced by conflict in Sudan.
Since mid-January, military operations in North Darfur have forced large numbers of people to flee their homes and seek refuge elsewhere in the country.
Oxfam Canada will provide water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services, including trucking in water, rehabilitating and drilling new hand pumps, building 200 emergency temporary latrines, distributing hygiene kits to 1,000 households and creating awareness for proper hygiene practices.
Breakdown of funding via the Canadian Humanitarian Assistance Fund (CHAF): $337,278 (Global Affairs Canada); $47,250 (Humanitarian Coalition); $68,034 (Oxfam Canada)
