Medair, IOM, and WVI collaboratively distributed NFI to 7,340 HHs in Malakal PoC

Medair, IOM, and WVI collaboratively distributed NFI kits to 7,340 HHs in Malakal PoC whos were affected by the recent fight in Malakal PoC.

The distribution took place within POC Sector 1, block G, at the DRC office. NFIs were distributed to Household representatives who had been affected by the recent crises and fire outbreak. During the prior assessment, Medair had distributed tokens in a targeted approach, handing them to those households with few or no basic NFIs. The affected population were subsequently informed about the distribution date through their respective community leaders.The distribution took place within POC Sector 1, block G, at the DRC office.

The use of the DRC site allowed good spacing and flow control of those receiving NFIs. Beneficiaries were admitted to the fenced off compound ten at a time. Two queues were formed outside the compound, to the left of the gates was the women’s queue, to the right the men’s. Ten women would be admitted, and then ten men. This pattern was repeated throughout the day. 

 

Upon admittance to the compound (which relied on their display of the relevant Medair token), beneficiaries were conducted around the DRC office to the registration tables. Here they gave their name, number of individuals in their household (including male/female breakdown), and either gave their signature or a thumb print.

 

From the registration desk, the beneficiaries moved one side, queuing for receipt of the items. They handed their validated tokens to the distribution team, who then instructed them to move down the line, collecting the requisite number of items at each ‘station’.

 

Throughout the process, colleagues from DRC and HDC Protection teams were going through the queues and extracting vulnerable people for fast-tracking registration and item collection.

 

The process, however, meant we faced considerable congestion at the entrance to the site – with only one gateway for entrance and exit, the crowds were often difficult to control, despite clear information on which side to queue. Order was maintained through a mixture of casual labour and the community Watch Group members (or Community Police as they informally call themselves). On the first couple of days, Force Protection came over to the distribution site from Charlie Gate to help create some extra space around the entrance. This became unnecessary as the days wore on.
