This 18-month project aims to provide the most vulnerable Central African refugees and host communities in Bas-Uélé and Nord-Ubangi provinces with immediate food security assistance while implementing early recovery activities to help improve their livelihoods and have a greater positive impact on the intervention areas. ACTED will distribute food in kind and cash to meet the immediate needs of the targeted beneficiaries. At the same time, ACTED will carry out agricultural recovery activities (training and distribution of seeds, inputs and tools) to improve the production capacities of the most vulnerable populations.
