Providing food during natural and humanitarian disasters

aideurgence001.jpgAs the source of an increasing number of natural disasters, the climatic emergency is a fact: drought, fires, storms, and floods are causing poor harvests, water scarcity and the displacement of populations which, as in Africa and Asia, are also confronted with conflicts and local economic collapse.

Food is, and will remain, at the center of these climatic and humanitarian crises.

 

An emergency fund of more than USD 400,000 was created in 2014, enabling rapid mobilization: because time is a decisive factor in situations of natural and humanitarian disasters.

The objective: To provide vital food aid to survivors or distressed populations quickly: distribution of food stamps or essential food items (energy biscuits, rice, legumes, oil, etc.).
