The ECHO-SAFER project aims to continue efforts to alert the humanitarian community to the existence of a recent crisis, to rapidly analyse multi-sectoral needs and the protection situation and to provide an immediate response adapted to the local context through the transfer of cash/multi-use vouchers to vulnerable people affected by a recent shock (project target estimated at 313,056 individuals). The response will target, from 01/04/2020 to 31/12/2020, as a priority the east of DRC but the coverage of SAFER will be national.
