Protection   Non-food items
ProtectionThe Protection in Humanitarian Action Framework is central to achieving the goal of AORD. The goal of the framework is to improve the safety of people affected by natural and human-induced crises, and relates to humanitarian action provided by AORD in affected operations area of AORD.
The framework guides AORD’s approach enhancing to protect the vulnerable groups such as (girls, boys, women, and men affected by war, and natural disaster in the operation areas of AORD by providing psychosocial and social support through child-friendly spaces and activities of family reunion, accommodate and provide care for children of separated and unaccompanied and be reunited with their families or integrated with alternative families, and provide medical, psychological and legal support to survivors of violence based on gender, and developing database for displaced and returnees to respond to their needs,  we do all this by construction child friendly spaces supported by different games include spaces to play , umbrella,  tools , and water units syrup and  washing hands, And providing psychological and social support and the provision of recreational activities for children spaces, Rehabilitation of houses Hosting separated children and unaccompanied until they are reunited with their families, The establishing and training of grassroots community networks to protect women and children, Building and establishing youth centers and women, Provision of sanitary materials necessary for women, and Awareness campaigns and counseling for harmful habits and protection issues, and aids and gender.
  NFIsNon-food items (NFIs) are vital to people’s survival, health, and well-being and dignity. In camp settings, where the population is likely to have limited or no access to outside resources, service providers may need to provide a full and most essential NFIs. Non-food items are valuable in a camp setting and can cause serious security challenges.
The distribution of NFIs therefore requires careful planning and management, to ensure equitable assistance to the displaced population and the safety and protection of all involved.

 Food security & Livelihood    WASH
Food-Security-FSLSudan has suffered from drought, flood, famine and conflict for decades. From 1989 with Operation Lifeline Sudan to the present, the country has received humanitarian aid as a result of internal and external conflict. Some areas have remained relatively stable recently, however conflict continues in the Blue Nile, and thousands of people are being displaced, or re-displaced, in Darfur as sporadic violence continues. It is within this fluid environment, with areas of relative calm contrasted by seasonal or spikes of conflict that the food security sector operates. This complex protracted state of emergency needs to be considered when analysing the gap of Food security & Livelihood needs.
To address this gap AORD is contribute to the eradication of hunger and food insecurity and malnutrition, and contribute to the reduction of poverty, and enable agricultural systems and food, and improve the living conditions and livelihood, and increased flexibility to shocks and to strengthen the mechanisms of adaptation to those affected by conflict and natural disasters and the most considerable need, in all states of the Sudan this will leads to improve the living conditions and livelihoods.
We do this through activities such as Provision of improved seeds and fertilizers to farmers, and Processing plowing farmland, and delivery and provision of equipment and agricultural machinery and vocational training, and providing livestock for families (sheep, cows, poultry), and training on small business and life skills, and Microfinance.
  WASHProviding access to clean water in sufficient quantities is essential to sustain life and promote health in emergency and crisis situations. Basic sanitation and appropriate hygiene behaviour and management are essential conditions to create a safe living environment.
Water, sanitation services and good hygiene, termed as WASH in the humanitarian community, are three closely connected preconditions for public health.
Inappropriate WASH conditions cause 1.7 million deaths annually. The UN's Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) foresees that the number of people without access to safe water will increase from just over 1 billion to 2 billion by 2025. The World Bank estimates that 38% of land area world-wide, home to approximately 70% of the world's population is exposed to drought. Dry lands have the highest infant-mortality.
Another important trend is the doubling of natural disasters from approximately 200 to over 400 per year in the past two decades. The number of floods and cyclones is rising dramatically as a proportion of these disasters. This rapidly growing range, frequency and scale of water-related crises are a major challenge for the capacity and resources of the global humanitarian system.
Responding to this needs of wash services, AORD is sustaining and expanding access to water supply, sanitation and health services to those affected by conflict and natural disasters and the most considerable need, in all states of Sudan to improving access to safe drinking water, adequate sanitation and hygiene practices appropriate for those affected by conflict and natural disasters, we do this through drilling of wells equipped with hand pumps, and maintenance of hand pumps, and construction of household and public  latrines, and providing drinking water through water tankers, and provide hygiene items for families and training for water committees and environmental sanitation, and training on the maintenance of hand pumps, and provide equipment maintenance of hand pumps, and provide drinking water and washing hands units in schools, and clean-up campaigns and provide Toiletries, and community mobilization, awareness campaigns, environmental sanitation and hygiene promotion and solid waste management.
Nutrition   Basic Infrastructure (BI)
NutritionHunger kills more people worldwide than HIV, tuberculosis, and malaria combined, and children are the most vulnerable. According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 104 million children around the world are undernourished and 175.5 million suffer from stunted growth because their bodies do not have enough nutrients. Malnutrition and hunger-related diseases account for 35 percent (3.1 million) of the 8.8 million deaths of children younger than five each year, Malnutrition is a complex disease that can be caused by lack of adequate food, illness, and poor caring practices – but it is preventable and curable.
AORD runs nutrition and food security programs in some of the Sudan most food-stressed areas, including Blue Nile, Sinnar and Darfur states. Our nutrition programs have a 90 percent success rate, meaning that almost all the malnourished children who come through our programs recover.  In all our programs, we address nutrition at every contact point we have with community members from nutrition education in water and sanitation projects and growth monitoring and nutrition screening in primary health care, to provision of therapeutic nutrition care. We work with all levels of government, civil society, and parents to improve their ability to provide the range of nutrition activities needed to promote healthy growth and prevent malnutrition in children. and contribute to the elimination of cases of malnutrition among children under five years of age in all states of Sudan, the impact of our programs made 80% of the targeted areas become free from diseases of malnutrition, we do so through Identify and treat children under five malnutrition.
Acute and Creation of a supplementary feeding program for children under five, and Establishing and supporting feeding centers and Support and strengthen reproductive health.
  Basic-Infrastructure-BIAORD humanitarian assistance includes reconstruction and rehabilitation (repairing pre-existing infrastructure as opposed to longer-term activities designed to improve the level of infrastructure) and disaster prevention and preparedness (disaster risk reduction (DRR), early warning systems, contingency stocks and planning). Under the AORD reporting criteria, humanitarian assistance has very clear cut-off points – for example, ‘disaster preparedness’ excludes longer-term work such as prevention of floods or conflicts. ‘Reconstruction relief and rehabilitation’ includes repairing pre-existing infrastructure but excludes longer-term activities designed to improve the level of infrastructure.
On this regards AORD is Strengthen coping mechanisms and increase the ability to cope with external shocks to those affected by conflicts such as displaced people, returnees and the most needed groups in all states of the Sudan, through Improve infrastructure services affected by conflict through the provision of basic ways, bridges, markets and basic services. and Reintegration and early recovery by improving the living conditions and livelihoods we do this through construction and maintenance of bridges, roads and markets, and Providing health and education services and services for water and sanitation, vocational training opportunities and microfinance.
