According to the UNHCR, since 2016 more than 32,000 Cameroonians have fled to neighbouring Nigeria. The majority of these people are women and children, including unaccompanied and separated minors. Cameroonians arriving in Nigeria rely on scarce local resources including insufficient food and public services. Tensions between new arrivals and their host communities are high as Nigeria struggles with its own conflict, internal displacements and widespread poverty.
The lack of proper sanitation facilities and use of proper hygiene practices can create a dangerously favourable environment for the transmission of diseases such as cholera or acute watery diarrhoea. Each year over a half of a million children in the world under age 5 die from diarrhoea, and thousands more succumb to malaria, cholera, parasites and related diseases. Much of this is attributable to unsafe drinking water, limited access to appropriate sanitation and poor hygiene practices.
Save the Children as a partner with UNHCR aimed to address through this project the inadequate access to water for refugees in camps and host communities, non-availability or non-existence of sanitation services (latrines, etc.), poor hygiene practices and open defecation in Cross River and Benue States. The overall goal of the project is the transformation of essential basic Water and Sanitation services in the refugee camps and host communities in Cross River State and Benue State into a sustainable model that will gradually integrate into the government service delivery. The project will also build the capacity of refugees to attain self-reliance and sustainable solutions ensuring that children are well protected and have access to various services in target communities in Adagom and Kwande LGAs of Benue.
Save the Children actions focuses on developing enhanced infrastructure and promoting behaviour change activities in households, health care settings and schools to reduce diarrhoea and other diseases in children under age 5. SCI collaborates with partners in other sectors in the delivery of the WASH intervention. Specifically, the intervention will establish and strengthen relationships with the education, health and protection partners to deliver an inclusive and integrated water, sanitation and hygiene response. SCI will work with the relevant existing government institutions to enhance collaboration and sustainability of the response.
