The Catholic Relief Services, CRS has held a one-day start-up training workshop for staff of the Navrongo-Bolgatanga Catholic Diocesan Development Organization, NABOCADO and the National Disaster Management Organization, NADMO, on planned relief services in the wake of increasing crossings of displaced persons from Burkina Faso into Ghana.

The training is geared towards the implementing planned activities under a project dubbed the Sahel Coastal Crisis Emergency Response Project.

As part of efforts to mitigate the plight of over 3,000 displaced persons, CRS has secured a USD100,000 support fund from the William J. and Dorothy K O’Neil Foundation to continue with relief services in the Upper East region of Ghana.

The project follows emergency response donations by CRS and NABOCADO in December 2022, as protracted attacks on their villages by armed militants groups have led to Burkinabes crossing into Bawku, Binduri, and Bawku West Districts in small groups daily.

The Sahel Coastal Crisis Emergency Response project according to a presentation by the Head of Office at CRS in Tamale, Akanpabadai Timothy Amang-bey seeks to mainly provide registered refugees with Cash for Food, improved Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Services by building 30 toilets units as well as identify and register new persons for future support.

    Emergency Response project.
