Our interventions are solutions-oriented, built on the Humanitarian-Development Nexus, strengthened by our partnerships, guided by humanitarian principles and our values, and designed with innovative methodologies and tools:
Advocacy and giving the affected community voice
WATER, SANITATION AND HYGIENE
Action For Humanity supports the most vulnerable population through provision of clean and safe drinking water and sanitation. We ensure community mobilisation and awareness on basic hygiene and sanitation. We apply a holistic approach to our humanitarian and development projects by focusing on hygiene awareness in communities and work through key stakeholders in order to maximise impact.
In 2019 our WASH projects reached 220,220 beneficiaries. When the world was hit by the devastating effects of COVID19, we distributed hygiene kits and delivered awareness training to 2,225 beneficiaries.
Many children miss out on education due to lack of access, unaffordability, displacement, and emergencies. Children are more likely to be trapped in the vicious cycles of poverty, poor health, forced labour, gender discrimination and early marriage. Our education programmes are fully inclusive and non-discriminatory to allow children of all ages, genders, abilities etc to receive a good education.
In 2019, we benefitted 127,349 children through our 164 schools in Syria. Since then we have taken over the management of even more, bringing the total number to 300 schools.
FOOD SECURITY AND LIVELIHOOD
We tackle starvation, food insecurity, malnutrition, and poverty through the provision of food and the opportunities and resources needed for people to generate income for themselves and their family. We implement food security and nutrition projects through a holistic approach in sure to deliver sustainable solutions.
During Ramadan 2020, Action For Humanity distributed 362 food baskets to some of the most vulnerable families in Yemen helping over 1,810 people. In 2019, 172,830 people benefitted from projects across Syria and the neighbouring countries.
Action for Humanity gives priority to implement Disaster Risk Reduction (DRR) projects to help communities to strengthen their adaptive capacity to the increasing number of disasters being created and heightened by climate change. We focus on renewable energy and ensure all our projects are adaptive to the impacts of climate change and do not place increased pressure on the environment.
RESEARCH, POLICY AND ADVOCACY
In addition to our humanitarian and development work across the world, Action For Humanity's key focus area is to advocate for the well-being of the most vulnerable people affected by conflict and natural disasters. Action For Humanity commits to take advocacy measures to improve the collective response for the most vulnerable people on earth.
HEALTH AND NUTRITION
Whether it’s emergency care, maternity, paediatrics, or regular medical care for chronic illnesses, vaccinations and mental health support, we ensure people get the life-saving support they need. We ensure affected communities have access to appropriate healthcare and strive to mitigate the impact of poverty on health. We also provide regular medical care for chronic illnesses, vaccinations and mental health support. This is crucial to not only driving positive health outcomes but to reducing extreme poverty.
In 2019 alone, we helped 379,423 people from our far-reaching health projects. 6,771 people benefitted from our mobile clinics which travelled to some of the hardest to reach areas of Syria. Meanwhile in Bangladesh, 45,000 Rohingya refugees in Cox’s Bazaar received healthcare from our static healthcare centre.
SHELTER AND CAMP COORDINATION
During times of disaster and conflict, a common factor is displacement, people fleeing their homes or having their homes damaged or destroyed. We believe every person has the right to a safe and secure home. To this end, we ensure displaced people have emergency shelter and basic, life-saving and life-sustaining provisions.
In Syria, in 2019, we supported 224,715 beneficiaries through various shelter projects. During the winter seasons we rehabilitated camps and restored drainage systems to protect camps against heavy rainfall. In Bangladesh, we have provided quality shelters for 893 people as part of Global Relief's Eco Village for vulnerable Rohingya refugees in Kutupalong, Cox’s Bazar district.
Gender mainstreaming is one of the most crucial considerations in which we ensure that our projects account for the unique vulnerabilities faced by people of all genders. Within our projects we ensure to treat everyone as equal as we know this is the first step to reducing poverty levels for all and achieving our vision.
At Action for Humanity we understand the continuing pressures everyone is putting on the world and the environment and how this can exacerbate conditions for already vulnerable communities. We work to ensure all our projects are sustainable and work with impacted and vulnerable communities who are most vulnerable to these increased environmental pressures.
SAFEGUARDING AND PROTECTION
The mainstreaming of safeguarding and protection is crucial to ensure no one is exposed to further harm and the affected populations are supported without discrimination. This includes both child protection and protection from gender-based violence.
LEAVE NO ONE BEHIND
Following the global commitment of ‘leave no one behind’, we endeavour for inclusion of the most marginalised and vulnerable people in all our programmatic interventions.
