SPLASH: Zambia's new approach to food distribution.
Zambia - SPLASH cards 1 WFP recently launched SPLASH – an innovative way for beneficiaries in Zambia to receive their monthly food rations. The project has already begun in two major towns, Kafue and Livingstone, and will eventually expand across the country.

SPLASH aims to be swift, secure and cost-effective – and provide spin-off benefits in the community.

As all that is needed are a mobile network and a local market, this innovative approach could soon be seen in other parts of the country and indeed in other countries in the years ahead.
