South Sudan: Collaboration essential to reach vulnerable people in remote areas

Health Rehabilitation
South Sudan

Initiatives in 2019 have demonstrated the necessity of collaboration to ensure that highly vulnerable individuals receive appropriate and timely services.

The HI Flying Team partnered with Danish Refugee Council (DRC) to conduct joint assessment missions in Lobonok in May and August 2019

Whilst present in the region, HI conducted rehabilitation assessments and activities and provided Mental Health and Psycho-social services. The DRC teams, in parallel, worked to address issues of Gender Based Violence, child protection and Individual Personal Assistance.

The advantage of this joint initiative is that it encourages referral of people in need to complementary services. For example, if the DRC child protection team identifies a child at risk who also has a disability, they know that HI can provide the necessary expert support. 

The Flying Team is financed by the European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations (ECHO).
