PWRDF Development Project
Refuge Egypt, a ministry of the Episcopal Church in Cairo, provides several services to newly arrived asylum seekers waiting for UNHCR refugee status determination, repatriation, resettlement or local integration into Egyptian society. Cairo is one of the largest urban refugee centres in the world. The situations in Sudan, South Sudan and Syria generated a large influx of refugees increasing the number of arrivals. In 2017, the project increased the health status of 7,921 direct beneficiaries through health education sessions on preventable diseases. There were 885 new primary health cases at the Arba Wa Nus -AWN clinic. 391 new families attended Well Baby and Well Child Clinics to monitor child growth and developmental benchmarks, and screen for malnutrition-related diseases. 617 children were follow-up for malnutrition and 96 new cases were detected and treated. 2,081 food parcels were supplied to support refugee household nutrition. 188 women received family planning services, 281 women attended Obstetrics and Gynecology (OBGYN) care, and there were 462 new antenatal care (ANC) cases and 2523 follow-up visits.
