We conduct emergency response programs to help internally displaced families in times of crisis, such as drought or conflict. These programs are designed to provide immediate assistance to vulnerable communities who are often forced to flee their homes without any resources or support.
One of the key components of our emergency response programs is the distribution of Non-Food Item (NFI) kits. These kits contain essential items such as shelter materials, blankets, cooking utensils, and hygiene supplies. The NFI kits are distributed to families who have been displaced and have lost their homes and possessions. We also provides support for water and sanitation in times of crisis. This includes the construction of water points, such as boreholes or wells, and the distribution of clean water to communities. We also provides hygiene education and supplies to prevent the spread of waterborne diseases and improve overall health outcomes. During times of drought, We conduct water tracking to identify areas where water sources are scarce and to provide support to communities that are most in need. This includes the distribution of water through tanker trucks and the construction of water storage facilities. OWDA's emergency response programs are designed to be flexible and responsive to the needs of the communities it serves. The organization works closely with local partners to identify the most vulnerable communities and to provide support where it is needed most. In addition to providing immediate assistance, OWDA's emergency response programs also focus on building resilience and preparing communities for future crises. This includes providing training on disaster preparedness, early warning systems, and sustainable agriculture practices.
