Qatar Red Crescent Society's (QRCS) mission in Lebanon has completed a community-based project to enhance water and sanitation services at four Syrian refugee camps in Joub Jannine, the capital of West Beqaa.
The project is supported by Elrha's Humanitarian Innovation Fund (HIF) programme.
HIF is funded by aid from the UK Government's Department for International Development (DFID). In a press statement, Head of QRCS's mission Omar Katerji reviewed the stages of the project and the work over a period of 6 months in accordance with the recommendations, needs and livelihoods of Syrian refugees.
He highlighted the fact that being close to the beneficiaries requires reconsideration of the safety and security protocols, emergency plans, and the broader humanitarian action methodology.
"All our work should be beneficiary oriented. Safety and security, logistics, procurements, human resources, and financial departments should work in harmony with the program management department in a dynamic rapid intervention system, with a well-controlled workflow timeframe and department-specific key performance indicators (KPIs)," Katerji noted.
