Self Report for Initiatives in 2018

The updates on initiatives shown below allow members or signatories to WHS initiatives to report on actions taken in support of the respective initiative. They are not intended to replace reporting processes undertaken by initiative secretariats.

  • Charter for Change

    Human Appeal Report on Charter for Change Commitments

  • Charter on Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities in Humanitarian Action

    What concrete actions have you taken in support of the initiative.

    In line with our commitment to the Charter, as a key partner of UNHCR, Human Appeal provided a range of protection programming to civilians during and following the battle of Mosul.  This includes over 27,000 people fleeing the military operations and those living in hard-to-reach areas, many of whom were persons with physical and mental disabilities.  Information provision/ referrals to other service providers were key components of this work.

    In addition to support for psychosocial programming, Human Appeal provided 77 people with disabilities comprehensive vocational training in the Gaza Strip.  Carpentry, furniture painting, upholstery, manufacturing aluminum products, wood carving, and book binding were some of the extensive options on offer.  (Twenty impoverished families were provided with furniture produced during their studies.)

    Globally, we reached large numbers of people with disabilities and their families through a range of food security programmes in addition to the provision of wheelchairs.

  • The Peace Promise

    What concrete actions have you taken in support of the initiative.

    Human Appeal strategically works to align Agenda 2030 aims with its humanitarian work through the provision of life-saving assistance in addition to longer-term interventions including shelter, health, education and even food security/ livelihoods programming.  Our local capacity building emphasizes participation of youth, women, special needs and other marginalized people to the greatest extent possible while national staff/volunteers from all faiths/backgrounds are actively recruited.  Participatory complaint and feedback mechanisms are in place as are the means to actively respond.

    Active context/risk analysis impacts our own work and our findings shared with donors/other agencies in the field, although at times this may be at the expense of what had been our ‘comparative advantage’.  Our comprehensive protection programming directly assists individuals and communities while making special efforts to educate local government/military/community members to try to re-build peaceful and inclusive societies marked by social cohesion, gender equality and respect for human rights.
