The purpose of this project is to provide cross-border emergency food security assistance to vulnerable people affected by shocks. To respond to short and long term displacements, ACTED in CAR will coordinate its distributions with ACTED in DRC. The objective is to assist 47,700 people (IDPs, refugees or host communities) to meet their immediate nutritional needs and reduce their vulnerability in the border provinces of the DRC, namely Ouaka, Lower Kotto, Mbomou and Haut-Mbomou. Activities will include providing cash and voucher or in-kind assistance simultaneously on both sides of the border to reduce the risks associated with the movement of vulnerable populations seeking assistance.
