Support the provision of basic needs
During the COVID19 pandemic lockdowns, and as a result of ongoing reductions to food rations being distributed to refugees, we pivoted our work to support the provision of basic needs to communities across East Africa. The refugee-led organisations we worked with were able to identify those most in need and were able to buy distribute packages of food, cooking, and health provisions to support them during these trying times.
