March 2021 - This grant represents Canada's support to the International Organization for Migration (IOM) in six countries, namely Bangladesh, Nigeria, South Sudan, Sudan, Venezuela, and Yemen. IOM provides humanitarian assistance to populations facing a heightened risk of vulnerability, including internally displaced persons (IDPs), refugees, migrants and host communities. IOM provides assistance in multiple sectors, including protection, shelter, emergency non-food items, water, sanitation and hygiene services, livelihoods, and camp coordination and management. This grant supports IOM’s objective of saving lives and responding to needs through humanitarian assistance and protection. With the support of GAC and other donors, IOM is facilitating access to essential relief items and adequate living conditions for crisis-affected populations, including IDPs, refugees, migrants, returnees and host communities. Project activities include: (1) providing emergency shelter kits, non-food items and multi-purpose cash; (2) coordinating camp management, site care and maintenance; (3) deploying mobile teams to remote locations where affected populations lack water, sanitation and hygiene services; (4) providing health support, mental health and psychosocial support in humanitarian response; (5) providing emergency water, sanitation and hygiene; (6) providing support services for humanitarian organizations by establishing humanitarian hubs in deep field locations; (7) data collection that includes mapping of vulnerable populations at points of entry and at the district and community level for enhanced targeting and delivery of humanitarian assistance; and (8) protection and gender mainstreaming across humanitarian response activities for extremely vulnerable individuals, including unaccompanied migrant children and single women and adolescent girls.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased access to emergency health care, shelter and relief items; (2) increased access to emergency water, sanitation and hygiene services; (3) increased access to protection services; and (4) increased ability to transport and deliver relief items. The expected ultimate outcome is lives saved, suffering alleviated and human dignity maintained in countries experiencing humanitarian crises or acute food insecurity.
