This project proposal outlines a comprehensive plan for implementing Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WASH) interventions in humanitarian emergencies. The goal is to address the urgent needs of affected populations during crises, ensuring access to safe water, improved sanitation facilities, and hygiene promotion. By implementing these interventions effectively, we aim to prevent the outbreak of waterborne diseases, improve living conditions, and restore human dignity in emergency settings.
