CRS’ Emergency Flooding Response in Benin
In response to flash flooding in northern Benin and widespread flooding in the southern departments of the country, Catholic Relief Services (CRS) organised 4 “humanitarian fairs” to meet the immediate needs of households most seriously affected. These fairs were unique in that they incorporated three different forms of aid into one event:
– Hygiene and sanitation demonstrations
– Distribution of WASH tickets
– Distribution of vouchers
This four-page document summarises each aspect of the response.
