Oxfam India’s innovation building resilient communities.

Oxfam India on 22 March ‘18 was a part of ‘Bihar Diwas’  in Patna where Oxfam showcased the resilience building work and engaged visitors through innovation on Public Health Engineering like Iron Removal Plant (IRP), Tiger Worm Toilets, Public Health Promotion such as Hand wash and Sexual Reproductive Health and Right(SRHR) tool kit especially designed for emergencies. The focus was on mainstreaming gender during emergencies and building resilient communities for better preparedness.  

Oxfam India’s stall was inaugurated by Minister of Disaster Management Department, Shri Dinesh Chandra Yadav. He appreciated Oxfam India’s use of innovation in Disaster Risk Reduction, especially towards women and children. People were curious to know the functionality of the innovations and Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) models. 

Deputy Chief Minister, Shri. Sushil Kumar Modi also visited Oxfam India’s innovation stall and went through every model of WASH minutely. He tried to understand the use and functionality of Oxfam India’s DRR models. These models are a step towards helping people during emergencies and building resilient communities in India.
