DEPARTMENT/COUNTRY PROGRAM DESCRIPTION/MISSION
The American Refugee Committee (ARC) Darfur program started in 2004 in response to the emergency needs of some 500,000 war-affected IDPs and host populations in the Tulus and Gereida corridors in southern Darfur. The overall aim of the program is to improve the well-being of the target populations by addressing their immediate humanitarian needs and contributing to long-term community stabilization.
In conjunction with the Khartoum support office, the field office in Nyala supports the delivery of primary health care services at 14 rehabilitated community clinics and a large clinic in the Gereida camp in addition to reaching out with mobile clinic services to 6 remote communities in which health facilities have not yet been rehabilitated. Water and sanitation services, including the construction/rehabilitation of boreholes water yards, household and institutional latrines and hygiene promotion messages, are also delivered in over 70 war-affected communities. A small agriculture component assists resettling IDPs and host populations with seeds, tools and extension services to grow their own food.
With an annual budget of between $6-8m, the Darfur program has 15 expatriates and over 330 national staff some of who are seconded from the line Ministries of the Sudan government.
