PUI implements projects through an integrated approach; to identify, understand and attempt to respond to the integrity of people’s needs affected by a crisis. The objective is to target priority actions, stabilize and improve the situation of the most vulnerable groups, in coordination and cooperation with all stakeholders and humanitarian actors.
