The newly displaced have expressed their urgent need for food. WFP is planning a new food distribution in June-July.
The distribution of a two-month emergency food supply by WFP and its partners on 6 April 2020 saved the lives of many displaced people who lacked any means of subsistence. A sectoral evaluation of the Amma site, held from 14 to 17 May, found the land suitable for millet culture and vegetable production, subject to land development and rainfall since the land hasn’t been used for 43 years. Local representatives of the IDPs from Diamerom and Amma worked together to reach an agreement on the use of arable land in Amma.
Distribution of agricultural inputs for the upcoming lean season is essential.
