To foster access to safe water IA has a large scope of intervention that includes hygiene and sanitation, building and rehabilitation of wells, promotion of household water treatment and an ambitious program of repairs and maintenance of hand pumps.

JOB CONTEXT:

The Ebola outbreak hit Guinea in December 2013. This is the first time virus is rife in West Africa; previously, over twenty deadly but rather limited outbreaks occurred in Central Africa where the virus was identified in 1976. The Ebola virus appeared in the forest area very close to the border with Sierra Leone and Liberia and, starting from Dec 2013, quickly spread to neighbouring districts in the two countries. Despite repeated global warning from MSF, WHO and national authorities were slow to implement strong control plans and the International response has been slow to deploy.

 

Today the epidemic is still not completely under control, especially in Guinea & Sierra Leone.

Today reaching Zero case is the objective. The Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) entered Sierra Leone during a positive momentum in the country's development trajectory. The EVD have significant direct and indirect impact on the economy and the society at large, which are rapidly reversing the gains Sierra Leone has made over the past decade. This situation still needs to be urgently addressed to reduce the humanitarian consequences of the epidemic, especially the disruption of health services and the fragile livelihood situation.

 

HI RESPONSE

The Handicap International "Mano River" programme that covers Liberia and Sierra Leone was implementing the following projects until the outbreak of the epidemic in these two countries early in the summer of 2014:

  • Inclusive Education projects (1 in Liberia and 1 in Sierra Leone);
  • Mother and Child Health Project (SL),
  • Civil society support project (disability movement) in Liberia. These projects have been stopped and their human resources devoted to the Ebola response.

 

The HI response to Ebola focuses in Sierra Leone on:

  • Ebola Ambulance fleet management in Western Area (Freetown and rural area): transportation of affected persons and home decontamination.
  • Ebola awareness raising of vulnerable groups (persons with disabilities, sex workers, HIV/AID affected, etc...), either through direct awareness actions with these groups or through sensitisation of stakeholders in the field (authorities, NGOs in order to include the specificities of those groups in their awareness campaigns. Awareness campaigns realized during the first phase towards people with disabilities were accompanied by a distribution of hygiene products.
  • Consortium with several INGOs, to support the identification and response to protection issues, particularly alerts related to Ebola context.
  • Resuming the Inclusive Education project following the reprogramming process to adapt the activities to Ebola context.

 

Today, in Sierra Leone, HI is leader of the “special needs” sub-committee of the cluster “Social Mobilisation” (lead by UNICEF).
