Video interviews: HYFRO’s work in a fragile context
This video showcases how SWIFT partner HYFRO is addressing challenges arising from a very fragile context in North Kivu.
HYFRO has been successfully implementing the SWIFT programme in North Kivu in a pre-election context, in an area affected by an ebola epidemic further enhancing tensions in this already fragile context.
Since 2014, the Sustainable WASH In Fragile Contexts (SWIFT) Consortium has been working to provide access to water and sanitation and to encourage the adoption of basic hygiene practices in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and in Kenya.
Various partners implement SWIFT’s actions in both target countries, in collaboration with governments as well as water providers, including utilities. The consortium is led by Oxfam, and includes Tearfund and the Overseas Development Institute (ODI) as global members.
The SWIFT programme is funded by UK aid from the UK government under a Payment by Results (PbR) contract.
