DPO, in partnership with Save the Children International, is providing essential Non-Food Item (NFI) assistance to Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the West Wollega zone of Oromia.
DPO, in collaboration with Save the Children International, is undertaking a vital initiative to support IDPs in the West Wollega zone, Oromia. By leveraging funding from the EHF, DPO is currently distributing NFI assistance to IDPs in three woredas – Nedjo, Mana Sibu, and Kiltu Kara. The objective of the project is to improve the health, dignity, safety, and overall well-being of the targeted 500 IDP households, including women, children, and People with Disabilities (PWDs), who have been identified as the most vulnerable.
The NFI kits being distributed consist of basic household items, including bedding, cooking utensils, and sanitary items. Currently, DPO has already provided assistance to 200 IDP households in the town and surrounding areas of Nedjo. The distribution is ongoing, with the remaining 300 IDP households Mana Sibu and Kiltu kara woredas expected to receive the NFI kits soon. Additional 200HHs will also receive a cash-for-rent assistance in the project.
The project is part of a comprehensive, multi-sectoral initiative that has been funded by the EHF through Save the Children. The primary aim of this project is to address various critical aspects of the IDPs’ well-being, such as health, dignity, safety, and overall welfare.
