ACTED en Centrafrique poursuit ses actions de soutien aux populations qui aspirent à retrouver la paix et la sécurité dans leurs pays après les crises sécuritaires de 2013 et 2015, qui ont causé des déplacements de population importants. Jusqu’à fin 2016, plus de 40 000 personnes vivaient encore dans des sites de déplacés à Bangui. Avec leur fermeture progressive début 2017, les familles ont commencé à retourner dans leurs quartiers d’origine pour y reconstruire une nouvelle vie.
ACTED in the Central African Republic continues to support populations willing to restore peace and security in their country after the 2013 and 2015 security crises caused massive population displacements throughout the country. Until the end of 2016, more than 40,000 people were still living in displacement sites in Bangui. These sites progressively closed in early 2017, leading many families to return to their neighbourhood and rebuild a new life.
ACTED is currently implementing a project, funded by the Embassy of France to Myanmar, in support of food security and nutrition in Rakhine State. This project will benefit to 238 vulnerable families in eight rural villages who have been affected by conflict and natural disasters. Focusing on off-season crop cultivation, it promotes year-round access to healthy food, such as nutrient-rich okra, yard long bean and cucumbers, in addition to improving water sources in eight villages in Mrauk-U and Kyauktaw Townships.

Since 2009, ACTED has been acting in Somalia and has focused on this region to improve access to food, water hygiene and sanitation. In December 2016, ACTED opened an office in Badhan (Sanaag region) and settled in Puntland following the worsening drought. Indeed, in March 2017, in Somalia, nearly 2.9 million people are in serious food insecurity. Sanaag is one of the areas most affected by the crisis.
Regarding this crisis situation, The Fonds SUEZ initiatives, once again, wished to engage with the ACTED teams to help the populations of this region.
ACTED Philippines’ new project in Eastern Samar, through support received from UNICEF, is focused on faecal sludge management, not exactly the most common and glamorous project focus. However, Jan Spit, a consultant with WASTE (an NGO / Cooperative based in Holland) convinced ACTED Philippines’ team that ‘waste is beautiful’ during his mission to Philippines in June 2017.
