Since 2015, Um Dukhun in Central Darfur has known an unprecedented influx of returnees from Chad, who go back to their place of origin after having fled their villages and the inter-tribal conflict between the Misseria and the Salamat tribes in 2013-2014.
Establishment of an emergency water point
Return sites suffer from significant shortcomings in terms of access to drinking water and hygiene promotion, but also in the areas of education and livelihoods. People cohabiting in these areas are particularly at risk, and vulnerability is exacerbated by the increase in the number of returns.
This programme focuses on three local villages, Beltebei, Garaia and Magan, located in remote areas, hosting a large number of vulnerable people but presenting little environmental and political risk, which encourages the implementation of longer-term actions.
It takes into account both the immediate humanitarian needs and the environment needed in the medium and long term for the permanent return of these populations.
In order to reduce the health risks and water-related diseases, water access facilities - transitional and sustainable - are established, and support is provided to communities for the gradual autonomous management of these water facilities. The supply of equipment and the provision of training to teachers and volunteer teachers will improve the school environment of both teachers and students.
The TGH teams will provide agricultural tools, seeds, as well as training on seed propagation.
Special attention is paid to women, who are offered hygiene promotion sessions in schools and during the training of teachers. They are the main beneficiaries of livelihood activities (vegetable growing, home gardening, cooking demonstration activities and income-generating activities).
