March 2019 - Severe food shortages and record-breaking hyperinflation have put buying food and medicine out of reach for many Venezuelans, and has heavily impacted their ability to meet basic needs. As the situation continues to deteriorate in Venezuela, vulnerable and crisis-affected populations are in need of critical assistance, including basic health assistance, food security and nutrition and water and sanitation. With GAC’s support, this project is helping address the basic water, sanitation and hygiene, and health needs of up to 3,100 crisis-affected people in Venezuela. Project activities include: (1) distributing up to 5,000 hygiene kits; (2) providing training on basic hygiene practices and solid waste management and promoting hygiene; and (3) conducting sensitization sessions on the importance of using safe drinking water and how to store it.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) improved access to safe drinking water; and (2) improved basic hygiene practices. The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated and human dignity maintained in countries experiencing humanitarian crises or acute food insecurity.
