NGO signs two grant agreements with French Embassy

The French Ambassador to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Mr Pierre Jacquemot and Mr Cheick Ba, Mission Head of “Action against Hunger” have signed two grant agreements targeting populations in the east of the country. According to the terms of the agreements, France agrees to contribute a total of 800,000 euros to the NGO. The aim of the agreements is to improve food security for 4,500 vulnerable households (22,500 people) among displaced populations and host families in the Dingila territory of Bas-Uélé district (Eastern Province), and 4,600 vulnerable households (32,000 people) in the territory of Kalehe (South Kivu Province). The “Action against Hunger” project aims to relaunch agricultural production among displaced and host households by promoting self-reliance. To this end, producers will be supplied with start-up material such as seeds and tools, as well as food coupons that will provide them with immediate access to food goods.The territory of Kalehe in South Kivu Province is considered as a priority area in DRC’s 2010 humanitarian action plan, after being hit by conflicts in 2008 and 2009, which led to massive population displacement from the high plateaux region to the plains, and a drop in food production due to plant disease, environmental damage and loss of livestock.
