Background on RWALPAK Project IR South Sudan is responding to the humanitarian needs assistance to people in need in Kapoeta North. The project aims at improving WASH services, Livelihoods, and Protection access for 25,000 most vulnerable and marginalized people in Kapoeta North. According to WASH HNO 2021, it is estimated that only 36% of households have access to improved water sources in less than 30 minutes. Whereas 64% rely on unsafe water sources also experience limited access to basic safe sanitation hence practicing open defecation. Only 12% of the population in central Equatoria have access to WASH NFIs, washing soaps, jerry cans, buckets, and water treatment tabs. According to IRW independent assessment conducted in October 2020 nonfunctional boreholes account for 52% in Kapoeta North. The need to increase water for pastoralist livelihoods (livestock animal troughs) on top of domestic use among the affected communities remains a high priority. IRW-SS conducted 4 different assessments towards the end of 2019 and a quick check-in 2020 indicated that the situation remained unchanged as most households were experiencing hunger and needed food assistance. The three main objectives for this project include (1)1. Improved access to WASH services 18,000 vulnerable populations including sustainable water sources for livestock (2) Improved livelihoods for 3000 livestock household keepers through animal health services and (3) Improved general protection and access to structured PSS services to GBV survivors.
