Thinking of a Career in Emergency Management?
- BY Nicole Pelette
SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL works around the towns of Paoua and Kaga Bandoro, where many displaced people live.
Our teams rehabilitate water and sanitation infrastructure, while forming water management committees to ensure their sustainability. Our hygiene awareness campaigns and the use of water points help to cope with the strong pressure exerted by the massive influx of populations. SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL supplies families, but also farmers with drinking water, by repairing some defective boreholes and ensuring the transport and storage of this water to their land, helping to improve food security.
Community interest works facilitate agricultural, pastoral and commercial activities and therefore increase the availability of food and revive the market. Our teams provide tool kits and seeds to farmers and breeders, and provide training.
Thanks to a rapid emergency response mechanism and the constitution of an emergency stock, SOLIDARITÉS INTERNATIONAL stands ready to intervene from the first hours of a man-made or natural disaster in order to ensure access to drinking water and has a healthy environment for populations made vulnerable by shock, natural disaster or epidemic.
