Over the past 13 months (beginning since February 1997) Hayat in partnership with Mercy Corps International implemented a US government - funded Public Building Repair project in Baku. The aim of the Project was to rehabilitate 46 degraded buildings in Baku housing IDP families.

The targeted IDP population segment included those facing near-certain long-term displacement from the contested area of Azerbaijan namely from Shusha, Lachin, Zangilan, Kelbajar and Gubadly. Targeted buildings are located in 5 districts in Baku.

The MCI-Hayat project benefits 4 329 IDP families including 7 290 children who had been forced to flee their homes during the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. The objective is to improve living conditions and encourage the community to participate in the repair work, maintenance and upkeep of the buildings. This project was over on the 3-rd of April 1998. Besides that Hayat is currently distributing quilts and seeds received from UNHCR among the beneficiaries of "Sheep" and "Shelter" projects.
