    Operating in tense conflict situations:

    Project hope, Ethiopia country office, is hosting a closing workshop where EECMY

    DASSC will be discussing its experiences in implementing projects in conflict-prone

    areas. In collaboration with Project Hope, the Oromia Health Bureau, and zonal health

    offices, EECMY DASSC has successfully carried out the Emergency Polio and Other

    Immunization project in IDPs and surrounding communities in West Oromia. The

    Commission has been invited to share its highly regarded accomplishments in

    executing projects in precarious security situations. A workshop organized in the Inter

    luxury International Hotel, Addis Abeba, is attended by representatives from the Ministry

    of Health, the Health Bureaus of the Oromia, Amhara, Benishangul and Gumuz, Afar

    and South Ethiopia regions, the Bill and Milinda Foundations, the Centre of Disease

    Control (CDC), and UNICEF.

    EECMY DASSC successfully implemented the project in 26 woredas in the East, West,

    Kellem, and Horo Gudur Wollega zones, leveraging its strong and well-established

    structure, longstanding presence, and impeccable reputation in the area. The

    Commission's strong collaboration with all stakeholders, as well as its non-partisan

    stance, greatly contributed to the project's success.

    Although the journey was not without challenges, we are grateful to God for guiding us

    through difficult times. Our dedicated staff were instrumental in serving both God and

    the vulnerable communities, ensuring the project's positive outcome.

    Having gained valuable experience during the project's implementation, we take great

    pleasure in sharing our success story. EECMY DASSC seizes this opportunity to invite

    potential partners who are interested in collaborating with us.

    (Note: EECMY stands for Ethiopian Evangelical Church Mekane Yesus, while DASSC

    represents the Development and Social Services Commission.)
