Feb 2005 - Report of the feeding program in IDP camps in Beni, East DRC.
The feeding programme is one of PPSSP activities among IDPs. It was set up following a needs assessment that showed that over 10% of children and pregnant and lactating women were malnourrished (all malnutrition degrees combined).

This situation was due to the insufficient food distribution by NGOs in terms of quantity and time span. Since PPSSP promotes prevention than cure, the feeding programme was set up to prevent malnutrition among children under five, pregnant and lactating women, as well as chronically sick people and elderly in the IDP camps
Donations by Friends of CME (FOC) used to purchase plastic jerry cans in order to provide families with containers for clear and drinking water.
