AAIDO is Operating in Unity state where the household food security remains based primarily on subsistence agriculture and livestock. The state is seriously hit by the current conflict and according to humanitarian’s report, about 250,000 people are estimated to be food insecure and some hundred thousand other were also reported to be not accessing basic primary health care, nutrition centers and most probably drinking water. AAIDO is coming joining the Humanitarians world to help promote peace building through conflict mitigation, GBV awareness, Child protection/general protection, Youth and sport, Education, Women and human rights, Health, Food security/ livelihood and Nutrition.
With the hope of peace returning in the country any time soon the rebuilding of the traditional livelihoods that had broken down after years of fighting. However, returning IDPs and refugees, as well as resident communities, are facing low availability of agricultural inputs and services for crops and livestock, poor quality healthcare and education, human rights violation or GBV abuse which is on the rise, inadequate infrastructure and fragmented markets. Clearly the restoration of livelihoods has had setbacks. Fighting among tribes and sub-clans, and the resulting displacements, destruction and deaths, have hindered the early recovery process. Political uncertainty associated with new civil structures, continued low level inter- and intra-tribal conflicts, new displacements, limited protection of civilians, drought and high food commodity prices, are the norm, rather than the exception.
To cite a few of these situations, Mayiandit, Leer, Guit, Rubkona and Koch counties suffered from a series of tribal conflicts, cattle rustling, floods/drought, civil insecurity, floods leading to inaccessibility to most areas.
These situations resulted into high percentages of moderately or severely food insecure populations, trauma, protection risk, GBV/woman and human right abuse, inadequate or little access to health care, tribal or inter-clan conflict, lack of education, this need critical attention to enhance their recovery from the shocks.
Dream Alive Charity Organization (AAIDO) is aiming to promote community resilience to overcome distractive conflicts through peace and conflict mitigation in the state, community potential for socio-economic recovery, Food security & Livelihood/training of farmers, awareness on human rights, protection awareness/, supporting the youths through sporting activities, providing primary healthcare and nutrition to the children, pregnant and lactating mothers, promote girl child education, engage local community to positively involve in community peace building and local democracy. Currently the Organization have their representatives in eight counties of Unity state,( Mayiandit, Mayom, Leer, Payinjar, Koch, Guit, Rubkona and Abiemnon.)
