Djibouti and Eritrea Appeal No. MAA64005 – Mid-Year report

Programme purpose: The programmes herein are aligned with the principles and priorities of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC). The Red Cross Society of Eritrea (RCSE) delivers its developmental services to the target communities through its core programmes of Community Based Health Development Programme (CBHDP), Disaster Management, Organizational Development (OD) and Humanitarian Values and Principles.

Programme summary: In the first half of 2011, RCSE provided services to over 100,000 beneficiaries through the aforementioned four core programmes. The ultimate goal of the RCSE programmes is to address the needs of the vulnerable communities to lead a better life.

The CBHDP has been focussing on water supply, hygiene and sanitation, Community Based Health and First Aid (CBHFA) as well as home management activities. The programme has assisted 3,050 people to get access to safe and adequate potable water in two villages in Maekel Branch. Through the construction of two new school latrines, 787 students, teachers and school communities were able to use the latrines and as well as develop hand washing practices after using toilets. CBHFA training is one of the main activities of the CBHDP. In the last six months, 570 people were trained in CBHFA.

During the period under review, over 12,900 casualties were taken to health facilities with the help of the RCSE ambulances in all the six branches. Demand for RCSE ambulance services is increasing due to public awareness about their availability. This also contributed to building the image of the National Society. In addition, the department has trained 30 women and men in nutrition skills focussing on fishing, processing and preparing fish. The nutrition training also aims at addressing food security for communities by producing fish from nearby ponds
