1. Background

Project background

This project targets Syrian refugee and vulnerable Jordanian households in 2 municipalities in Mafraq Governorate (Um Aljmal Municipality and Za’atari Municipality – these can be adjusted to other Oxfam operational areas nearby in coordination with WASH Working Group).
The project is based on Oxfam’s Rapid Needs Assessment (May 2020) in these two municipalities, which indicated a need for hygiene and cleaning items.

The project’s overall Objective is to: Prevent the transmission of Covid-19 in 2 host communities in Mafraq Governorate which have been impacted by the Syria crisis.

The project has one main component:

Result: Households have access to essential hygiene items to meet their basic needs and prevent the transmission of Covid-19.

The project aims to distribute hygiene kits targeted towards the most vulnerable households, which will be selected based on vulnerability criteria. Hygiene kits will be distributed house-to-house to prevent the protection risks associated with distributions and prevent heavy and bulky items needing to be transported by beneficiaries.

The project compliments Oxfam’s funded Covid-19 response in these two municipalities which targets the population with Risk Communication and Community Engagement (RCCE) for Covid-19.

Oxfam has an existing relationship with 2 local CBOs, the relevant Municipalities and communities in the two project locations, easing access and selection of beneficiaries.

Post distribution monitoring (PDM) will be conducted after the distribution of hygiene kits using representative sample, through a household questioner, and complimented by facilitators observations.

The PDM will cover the utilization of the hygiene kits, the quality and adequacy of items, the targeting process, changes in practice, and the use of complaint and feedback and accountability mechanism by the beneficiaries. Data collection and analysis of the PDM will be done using SurveyCTO.
