The proposed Emergency Relief Assistance Operation is a US$ 1 million grant from the Bank’s Special Relief Fund (SRF) in response to the appeal of the Government of the Kingdom of Lesotho. The Kingdom of Lesotho is facing increased and severe food insecurity due to the drought caused by the El Nino phenomenon. The contribution will be used to procure cereals (maize) pulses, and oil and will cover the associated costs related to the delivery of food supply, including transportation from point of purchase to Lesotho and onward transportation for distribution to beneficiaries, storage, handling, monitoring and distribution. It will also cover the management cost of the executing agency.
The objective of the proposed Bank Group Emergency Relief Assistance to the Kingdom of Lesotho is to contribute to the on-going efforts of the Government and other humanitarian partners to save lives and protect livelihoods in the current crisis situation caused by the drought being experienced by the country. This objective will be achieved through the provision of emergency food relief.
This contribution will cover specifically the food commodity requirements from July 2016 to December 2016 consisting of 948 MT of maize, 142 MT of pulses and 47 MT of Vegetable Oil for 13,160 beneficiaries in Thaba - Tseka, Quthing, Maseru, Qacha and Mohales` Hoek districts.
