The Netherlands Red Cross is supporting Croix Rouge Benin to decrease the number of children under 5 suffering from waterborne diseases and fecal in the boroughs of Kessounou (common Dangbo) and Zoungamé (common Aguégués) in the department of Ouémé. One of the activities to achieve this is to perform field assessments, that identify vulnerable people. Detailed maps of the project area are vital to properly sample the assessment. Also the maps contribute to the logistical operation and the continued monitoring of the project targets against the residences of people. The Netherlands Red Cross will through this work also start investing in a local HOT community in Benin, and is seeking opporunities to make the necessary hardware available and to provide training were needed.
