World Food Programme
Provision of general food assistance to IDPs: Crisisaffected people in Iraq, including internally displaced persons, are able to meet their basic food and nutrition needs during and in the aftermath of crisis throughout the year. We distribute food rations of 70.3 Kg for each family. The items are: Wheat flour, Rice, Lentils, Veg. Oil, Salt, Sugar, Bulgur.
EMPACT: Mercy Hands is implementing EMPACT program (EMPOWERMENT in ACTION). Beneficiaries will have two lectures each day (English and IT) for five days a week (Sunday through Thursday).
MMT (Mobile Money Transfer): The project is based on the idea of avoiding the beneficiaries of long waiting lines to receive food baskets and also to give more options to purchase a variety of foods that meet the needs of the beneficiaries.
School Feeding Project: This project aims to support WFP in providing a daily meal to approximately 47,000 primary school students spread over 98, located across Shatt Al-Arab district/ Basra, and 23,000 students spread on 70 schools in Al-Khudir district/Muthana. Each student will receive bread, cheese, juice, water, and fruits as daily meals. Beyond the food distribution, child-protection will be mainstreamed throughout the program and Mercy Hands will ensure awareness sessions about hygiene and nutrition through different participatory activities in schools.
