Project General Description

The emergency humanitarian aid provided by the Bank, as part of this project, follows the explosion of an armament depot of the Congolese armed forces in Mpila on 04 March 2012. It consists of three components, including: (i) the acquisition and distribution of food and drinking water; (ii) the acquisition and distribution of emergency relief materials; and (iii) the distribution of school kits and materials. The purpose of the Bank's grant is to distribute food and commodities for nearly 10,000 people for a further two months for the provision of food and drinking water. The provision of emergency relief supplies consists of the distribution of tents, mattresses, mats and blankets to displaced populations. The distribution of kits and school materials concerns the supply of 1500 school kits to students living in the lodgings and the provision of 2100 benches to host schools where students affected by the explosions were transferred.

Project Objectives

The main objective of the Bank's intervention is to contribute to the efforts of the Congolese government and development partners in the care of the affected populations and the rapid restoration of normalcy in their economic and social life. Specifically, the proposed emergency assistance should: (i) improve the living conditions of displaced persons; and (ii) facilitate the re-schooling of students in public schools affected by explosions.

Beneficiaries

About 10,000 people should be identified in the affected population and should be directly affected by emergency assistance. In addition to the nutritional care of the victims, another priority of the Government is the care of students in public schools affected by the explosions. In this context, part of the resources of the Special Relief Fund should be used for the supply of school kits to the pupils concerned and bench-tables.
