WFP Provides Food To Congolese Refugees In Rwanda
Located in Rwanda's Southern Province, Kigeme refugee camp is home to 15000 Congolese refugees who fled the conflict in eastern DRC in early 2012.
Thirty-one-year-old Nzamukosha Mutoni, a mother of six, feeds her year-old malnurished child. WFP provides supplementary feeding in refugee camps to children under five years of age.
In Rwanda, WFP provides monthly general food distribution to refugees to meet their daily food requirements. The most vulnerable segments of the population also receive additional rations under safety net interventions. These safety net mechanisms include: blanket supplementary feeding for children 6 - 23 months of age, blanket supplementary feeding for pregnant and lactating women, provision of a mid-morning meal to primary school children, curative supplementary feeding for moderately malnourished children 24 - 59 months of age.
