Annex 10: WASH for Ebola Date updated: 18/12 Completed by Steller Makasi, WASH Cluster firstname.lastname@example.org Humanitarian Response Two Sludge trucks from US-DART team will be handed over to UNICEF and Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation (LWSC) this week to start transporting liquid sludge being overflowed in Septic tanks in two ETUs to the Fiamah (Monrovia) waste water treatment plant to store and treat infectious liquid waste. These septic tanks were emptied and temporarily stored in UNICEF provided poly tanks. With the funding assistance of USAID, UNICEF will get into an operational plan with Liberia Water and Sewer Corporation (LWSC) to continue emptying and transporting liquid infectious waste from ETUs. UNICEF, in consultation with infection prevention and control (IPC) experts from WHO and ICRC, is organizing a practical training session on handling of Waste by Operators and Drivers of sludge trucks of LWSC Subnational coordination has to be reinforced, and partners working in the EVD response should engage with the WASH cluster coordinators at county level. The WASH Cluster Coordination group conducted a day long capacity building workshop on Integrated WASH assessment and monitoring for County level WASH Coordinators and other technical staff of MOPW. The main objective of the workshop was “Technical and coordination capacity development of WASH team at sub-national level in support to Ebola response using RITE (Rapid Isolation and Treatment of Ebola) approach”. A total of 35 participants attended including MOH environmental health staff and few NGO staff. Major focus of this workshop was on assessment and monitoring of WASH facilities, before and after installation, by MOPW county technical teams with available INGOs support. It was facilitated by MOPW Assistant Minister, National Cluster Coordinator, MOPW WASH Engineer, Public Health Engineer from OXFAM, UNICEF Cluster Coordinator and two UNICEF WASH specialists. WASH Cluster organized this workshop with financial, logistical and technical support of UNICEF Liberia. WASH Cluster members have agreed to form five technical working groups (TWGs) in its last weekly meeting with a focal person as chair with an alternative to steer working group work and to report their activities to the Cluster meeting. The TWGs are: ETU/CCC; waste management; Integrated WASH assessment, Hygiene promotion and social mobilization and sub-national coordinator. Each TWGs will draft its major tasks in relation to Ebola response. The Ministry of Public Works with support from WASH cluster members at county level have begun monitoring the distribution of hygiene promotion kits and their use at household levels. One of the Ebola hard hit communities of Telbormai in Voinjama was monitored during the last week. The first sub- national level coordination meeting for the WASH Ebola Away Response was also initiated during this period Out of 13 incinerators brought in the country 12 were installed. ICRC is leading the training and technical support for the assembly of these 13 incinerators to be used for bio-med waste at the ETUs in and around Monrovia. UNOPS and WHO organized training for operators from Government counterpart and NGOs who have taken operational responsibility. WHO, MOHSW, IMC, IOM and MSF are operating and maintaining WASH facilities in ETU for 750 beds capacity in the country (Lofa, Bong, Montserrado, Bomi, Nimba and Margibi counties). IMC with the support of Save The Children open a new ETU in Margibi, and IOM in Tumaburg with the support of USAID/AFL. The construction of the WASH system for additional ETUs in the country with 16 ETU’s under construction (beds) (Actors: UNICEF, WFP, WHO, AFL, WHH, USAID and WB). These are being assessed by WASH cluster assessment teams to ensure fulfilling minimum WASH requirements with their technical advice and recommendations. As of now 9 of these were assessed for WASH by the Cluster organized teams and schedules for the remaining are being worked out with operating entities. The assessment teams of the cluster also assessed three CCCs in Margibi, Fishtown and in Lofa counties. As part of UNICEF’s continued support to rehabilitation of the water supply system and sanitation facilities in ETUs, UNICEF provided 12 units of poly tanks and 3 submersible pumps to the unity Centre ETU to pump out waste water from the overflowing tank with proper drainage. Rehabilitation and upgrade of the water supply system and sanitation facilities in ELWA-2 ETU is almost halfway to complete. The work involves construction of 2 toilets, 2 showers and a storm water drainage system and rehabilitation of pipelines for water supply.
