(en) Italy, FDCA, Cantier #24: ACS - RESPONSE TO THE CURRENT EMERGENCY (war in Gaza) (ca, de, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Thu, 11 Apr 2024 08:18:41 +0300

ACS - Association of Cooperation and Solidarity is a non-profit NGO, founded in 1991 and present in Palestine since 1999, operating in WestBank/GazaStrip (West Bank and Gaza Strip) ---- Our main activities concern rural, integrated projects by training activities for beneficiaries; Emergency program for vulnerable populations and cultural exchange program between schools, universities and formal and non-formal educational associations. We invest in participatory projects that involve as many local and international actors as possible because we believe that networking can satisfy both the need for individual support and the need for strengthening civil society and its organizations. Our preferred intervention tools are training, support for the start-up of rural or small-scale commercial activities, including through microcredit programs and the strengthening of basic local institutions. The activation and support of the projects are made possible by participation in international tenders, by funding from institutional donors and by numerous supporters who contribute with volunteering or donations.


Place of intervention: SOUTHERN Gaza Strip - Deir El Balah, Nuseirat, Zwaida, Khan Younis, Mawasi and Rafah

Description of the intervention:

Since the start of Israeli military action, the people of Gaza have been in immediate need of emergency humanitarian aid; with the donations made since the beginning, we provide food, medicines, drinking water and Cash Assistance and Cash for work to 5000 families. Every day we provide over 2500 hot meals to the displaced people of Mawasi.

ACS's intervention consists in bringing aid which is distributed through volunteers and local staff, for the daily supplies of the displaced, which are distinguished in different ways:

1. Cash assistance to allow families to make independent purchases and money in exchange for work done as compensation for the work done

2. distribution of basic necessities (tents, blankets, mattresses and winter clothing)

3. food distribution (fresh food, hot food, canned food available on the local market)

4. setting up of public toilets to be positioned in the various emergency areas for displaced people, in order to avoid the accumulation of fecal material scattered in densely populated settlements and partially remedy ongoing health problems, guaranteeing the tools for excavation, cleaning and maintenance.

5. cleaning and management of waste in shelters and hospitals, paying local staff and in areas where tent cities are being built for the displaced population, in order to prevent the accumulation of waste produced within the refugee centers or in the their vicinity exposes people to very high risks of infections and diseases from bacteriological contamination.

6. Psychosocial and recreational activities for children organized by circus troupes and operators

7. organization and shipment of basic necessities from abroad

8. Activation of an emergency "communication network" for the InternetGAP" (Construction of "Network Trees" for emergency communication)
