The World Food Programme (WFP) uses either food or cash transfers to support vulnerable populations affected by the violence in Northeast Nigeria.
The objective of this project is to work towards the improvement of the supply chains for emergency nutrition commodities.
World Food Programme (WFP)
Throughout 2017 and 2018, WFP assistance reached 1.2 million people every month. Part of this food assistance includes the provision of specialized nutritious food for children under 5, pregnant and lactating mothers.
WFP also supports other humanitarian actors working in Nigeria in addressing the main logistics, including storage augmentation in key operational areas.
In order to achieve these objectives, WFP partners with implementing partners such as eHA to setup and manage warehouse facilities across the region.
eHA’s understanding of the local context was instrumental in assisting WFP in identifying local food suppliers and suitable warehouse facilities in Kano State - warehouse facilities which eHA upgraded and manages to WFP standards.
eHA also manages WFP food and common storage facilities in some of the toughest parts of Borno State - Ngala and Rann. These deep field storage locations help ensure the program is able to deliver food to the most vulnerable populations.
