> Water, Sanitation and Hygiene in Emergencies
As lead for the Emergency WASH Cluster, UNICEF coordinated an intensive campaign to control the spread of diarrhoea to over 1 million people in 17 districts. WASH support continued until April 2009 for 4,000 families displaced by flooding in 2008. With partners, 400 staff from 15 NGOs and 4,000 local volunteers were trained on life-saving WASH tools and techniques, with the potential to reach over 3.5 million beneficiaries. WASH supplies for at least 100,000 people were replenished in four locations. WASH contingency plans for flood and earthquake scenarios were revised, and contingency plans are being developed for 11 flood-prone districts and four districts prone to acute gastro-enteritis (AGE).
