The US$500,000 emergency relief assistance operation would be used for buying approximately 1,000 tons of maize in South Africa, transport and distribution costs. The assistance will 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 support. Relief assistance will be specifically targeted to provinces and districts most affected by poor rainfall.
The objective of the proposed Bank emergency humanitarian relief assistance is to contribute to the alleviation of the suffering of the drought-affected victims in Zambia.
Relief food assistance will target vulnerable individuals and households with the primary objective of saving lives and preserving livelihoods, and will be distributed through programming categories such as Food Security, Health and Nutrition, HIV/AIDS, and Education.
