French global food aid program (2nd installment)
Within the framework of its global food aid program (2nd installment), France has decided to allocate € 330,000 (approx. $ 430,500) to the French NGO Triangle Génération Humanitaire (TGH).
This assistance, which follows a previous project financed by the second installment of the French food aid in 2012, will benefit to 713 households in Matupi township (22 villages). Operations will aim at repairing damaged irrigation channels, at expanding and protecting arable land (rice terraces), and at distributing agricultural inputs.
The French global food aid program (CIAA), with an annual budget of 35 million Euros (approx. 47 million USD), is aimed to support people living with severe food insecurity and nutritional vulnerability in the world.
