Description and results


April 2018: The humanitarian situation in Myanmar is characterized by a complex combination of vulnerability to natural disasters, armed conflict, inter-communal tension, statelessness and displacement. It is estimated that 863,000 crisis-affected women, men, boys and girls will be in need of humanitarian assistance this year. With GAC’s support, the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA Canada) is increasing access to clean water, hygiene and sanitation services, and improving access to goods and basic services for conflict-affected and displaced populations in up to 52 camps in Kachin and Northern Shan states. Project activities include: (1) delivering gender sensitive hygiene promotion and hygiene kits; (2) improving water supply systems, desludging of existing facilities and providing gender-sensitive bathing cubicles and latrines; and (3) providing cash grants to internally displaced persons and particularly vulnerable people, such as pregnant and lactating women.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved hygiene and reduced risk of sexual and gender-based violence, especial of women and children; (2) improved equitable access to safe and dignified cultural and gender sensitive sanitation facilities and water; and (3) improved access to goods and services by vulnerable crisis-affected internally displaced persons through targeted individual and household cash grants. The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated and human dignity maintained in countries experiencing humanitarian crises or acute food insecurity.
