What RASEDO is Doing to Help the Region
Since its inception, different projects in different thematic areas across the regions have been implemented making the organization friendly and readily accepted in communities living in these areas. RASEDO has partnered with the UN, International organizations, government institutions, local communities, and people in the diaspora to enhance success in the implementation and sustainability of our programs. Through our interventions, we have been able to impact the lives of over 300,000 people including women and children hence saving lives. Below are some of our interventions in the targeted areas:
Ø Following the Cholera outbreak in Kurbio-Somalia due to water contamination, RASEDO intervened and saw the construction of toilets that have greatly contributed reduction of cholera-related deaths in the area.
Ø Our advocacy efforts saw the establishment of Garissa township garbage collection and disposal unit by the local authorities.
Ø Through awareness creation and community mobilization on the need to conserve the environment we have seen a reduction in logging in the Jubaland region.
Ø Our interventions in conflict-affected populations saw the construction of shelters for IDPs in Kismayu and providing them with essential non-food items that saved children from life-threatening diseases including mosquito-related infections and women and girls from rape, and insecurity.
