Food Security & Livelihood Development
Food Security and Livelihood Development is one of our main programmatic areas. Over the past three years, WWoH has partnered with Food and Agriculture Organization of United Nations (FAO) to provide humanitarian assistance to the conflict-affected and vulnerable households of Duk, Twic and Bor South Counties under the Emergency Livelihood Response Program (ELRP). We increased food security of more than 20,000HHs by providing emergency response in terms of distribution of crops, fishing and vegetable kits.
In 2018, WWoH partnered with both IOM and FAO to undertake a rapid food security response in the 15 Islands of Duk including Atuek , Moldova, Atul, Wat Kuac, Flight Camp, Koyom, Mayen, Tip, Parur, Nguak, Mayual, Chinpiu, Majak, Kawer and Adiit . IOM provided the funds under the Rapid Response Fund (RRF) courtesy of USAID while FAO provided the vegetable and fishing kits that were distributed to 5,000HHs. WWoH also conducted trainings to the beneficiaries on vegetable production techniques as well as the use of fishing gears, improved fish handling and preservation techniques.
WWoH is currently implementing Emergency Livelihood Response Program (ELRP) in Duk County, Jonglei State in partnership with Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). The ELRP 2109 Main Season Response (MSR) whose objective is to distribute the Emergency Livelihood kits (crop kits, vegetable kits and fishing kits) to support 3,800 food insecure households in Duk County commenced in May 2019 and the implementation is scheduled to be completed in December 2019.
