In the realm of humanitarian efforts and protection advocacy, IHS Ethiopia stands as a dedicated guardian, actively participating in the protection of vulnerable populations across more than 22 woredas in Tigray and Amhara regions. Our Protection Monitoring interventions, conducted in collaboration with UNHCR, reflect a commitment to evaluating and addressing the basic needs of internally displaced people (IDP) and returning populations. Through joint field visits, community consultations, and awareness-raising initiatives, we’ve reached a total of 128,974 IDPs in Tigray and 24,504 in the Amhara region, fostering community resilience and empowering individuals to actively participate in their protection.
Our commitment to inclusivity extends to Persons with Specific Needs (PSN), where we provide material support, assistive devices, and psychosocial support services. In every statistic lies a story of resilience, empowerment, and transformation. Looking ahead, our dedication to monitoring protection needs, promoting inclusivity, and advocating for the rights of the most vulnerable remains resolute. Join us in this collective endeavor to create a world where every individual’s rights are respected, and their well-being is safeguarded.
Comprehensive Protection Monitoring for Vulnerable Populations
In the complex landscape of crisis-affected regions, comprehensive protection monitoring is indispensable. IHS is dedicated to tracking and responding to protection risks, especially those faced by persons with special needs. Our Protection programs involve robust monitoring mechanisms, allowing us to identify emerging challenges and adapt our interventions accordingly.
As part of our commitment to leaving no one behind, we focus on persons with special needs, addressing the unique protection concerns they face. By conducting regular assessments, we strive to create an inclusive protective environment where vulnerable populations are actively engaged in the decision-making processes that affect their lives.
Addressing the Unique Needs of Persons with Special Needs
Persons with special needs often confront additional challenges in crisis situations, ranging from limited access to essential services to heightened vulnerability to exploitation. IHS’s Protection programs are tailored to address these unique needs, ensuring that inclusivity is not just a goal but an integral aspect of our humanitarian efforts.
In collaboration with local authorities and partners, our initiatives aim to bridge the gap in existing services, providing tailored support to persons with special needs. From access to education to healthcare, we advocate for and work towards an inclusive protective environment that upholds the rights and dignity of every individual.
