COVID-19 restrictions in the country have been lifted, yet the community continues to adhere to the necessary preventive measures. While schools can reopen, allowing for hybrid learning for children in certain grades, due to the country’s current economic crisis and fuel shortage, schools have shut again.
In the midst of this, World Vision is supporting the community by:
- Distributing 1,957 educational and learning materials to children in grade 5 to 9.
- Engaged 95 children in the PD Hearth sessions, to raise awareness on improving their health and nutrition.
- Supported 537 young children with additional nutritional meals 4 days a week.
- Providing 177 dry-ration packs to selected most vulnerable families.
As the country continues to face the crisis where costs of essential food and non-food items have skyrocketed, there is a shortage of fuel, transportation and essential medication and medical equipment, World Vision plans to continue supporting the community by continuously engaging the most vulnerable families with dry ration packs, educational materials, nutritional cereals and livelihood assistance, among other planned interventions.
