Desired start date: 01/11/2022
Duration of the mission: 6 months
Location: Pemba, Mozambique
ABOUT THE MISSION
- Mission: size, bases, budget, number of expatriates and national staffs.
Solidarités International intervened in Mozambique in March 2019 for a few months following the passage of Cyclone Idai, which hit the Province of Sofala and the city of Beira hard. Operations were suspended after the emergency phase and the mission closed. The evolution of the situation in Cabo Delgado province, hit by several cyclones and severely affected by the violent actions of armed groups claiming to be IS, which caused the displacement of nearly 700 000 people, led to an assessment in May 2021. The assessment, carried out in the most affected district highlighted needs, particularly in the WASH sector, and the lack of emergency actors. The mission is opening in a complex security and administrative environment, where access will be a major issue.
Solidarités International was one of the first INGO actors to respond to the growing crisis in Cabo Delgado, leading emergency response and distributions in hard-to-reach areas. SI has completed its opening phase and diversified its activities in 2022. A new field base (in Palma) is opening, and multiple new projects are opening.
In 2021, Solidarités International developed a WASH response in Mueda Districts complemented by an emergency response to provide survival kits to newly displaced families. The WASH programs are focusing on in one hand supporting IDPs sites by providing water, sanitation and hygiene solution rapidly through emergency solution, and on the other hand working to improve the water network of the city in a more sustainable approach. SI also implemented a limited Shelter/NFI response in displacement sites in Mueda.
Since 2021, SI carried out WASH emergency activities thanks to the Start fund, UNICEF and SDC fundings to respond to the humanitarian needs of in and out of camp IDPs, as well as host communities. SI also developed a strong shelter/NFI component with UNHCR funds in the country, mainly in IDPs sites, and has expanded its support to the affected population with general food distribution in Nangade in the past months (WFP funds). This expertise led SI to implement emergency NFI distributions as well as more sustainable shelter responses to respond to the needs of the populations living in the relocation camps.
In 2022, mission expanded into integrated, multisectorial programming including: NFI, CCCM, Shelter, Food, WASH, RRM and FSL. This scale up in terms of sectors is also reflected in term of geography, with new areas of interventions such as Palma, Muindumbe, Nangade, and all other new accessible areas in the province. Additional projects are currently under development.
