In the Blolequin department, along with Ivory Coast's western regions, post-election crises from 2010 have resulted in the displacement of people, destruction of homes and health facilities. Despite humanitarian aid in 2011 and 2012, food insecurity, malnutrition, poor water, sanitation, and hygiene, and epidemic diseases are still a threat. In this last category, diarrhoea is the second leading culprit for under-five mortality, due largely to absence of sufficient water, sanitation, and hygiene practices and structures, all of which are exacerbated by internal conflicts.
The project's purpose is to make selected communities more resilient to diarrhoea through increasing access to safe water, sanitation, and hygiene.
The project chiefly targets children under five years-old, but casts a wider net and will ultimately reach more than 60,000 people in delivering its services, good, and communications.
