Project General Description

The present intervention is relative to the Humanitarian Emergency Assistance to the 2005 Drought Victims. It aims to contribute to the alleviation of the suffering of the drought-affected victims in Malawi. This operation should be funded through a grant of US$500,000 from the Bank’s Special Relief Fund (SRF). The grant funds should be used to purchase food, as well as associated costs of transportation and distribution of food rations to the beneficiaries, and administrative charges. The assistance should be channelled through targeted food distribution to households with insufficient crop production (as a result of insufficient rainfall), as well as those with no livestock or other sources of income (remittances, wage labour, etc) to purchase food and other basic needs; and widows, orphans, female- and elderly-headed households without visible means of survival. This specifically targeted to provinces and districts most affected by poor rainfall. The total contribution of the African Development Bank should be used for buying approximately 1,000 tons of maize, and to cover transport and distribution costs.
