For the past six months, a wide range of actors have been working to develop the Sudan National Sanitation and Hygiene Strategic Framework, which will help to speed and scale up efforts to improve sanitation and hygiene services and practices across the country. WASH expert Sarah House explains RedR’s contribution to this vital initiative.
One hidden aspect of emergency response is the psychological toll it takes on aid workers, especially in challenging humanitarian situations like Darfur, Sudan. When RedR began work in the troubled region in 2005, we immediately saw the need to create a programme of training and support to help humanitarian staff cope with the insecurity and stress that comes with the job.
On March the 4th the International Criminal Court issued an arrest warrant for the President of Sudan . Following that announcement it has been confirmed that 10 foreign aid agencies have had their registration to work in North Sudan and Darfur revoked.
In the last two weeks RedR in Sudan received urgent calls from counterpart organisations seeking assistance to support their staff in Darfur. In both incidents the staff survived an attack on their convoy and were beaten or robbed. The need to address the well-being of humanitarian workers in Darfur demands an urgent response from the international community.
DFID have confirmed their continued funding and commitment to RedR-IHE's Programme in Sudan.
As part of RedR-IHE's project of providing safety training and support to humanitarian relief agencies in Darfur and Khartoum, in December 2005 and January 2006 a detailed survey of the safety and security practices of NGOs was undertaken. Below is the Summary to this 21 page report.
