Cameroon

Since 2015 IEDA Relief has been working with WFP in Cameroon in two major projects.

 

1. Blanket supplementary Feeding (BSFP):

  • The objective is to contribute to the improvement of nutritional status of boys and girls between 6 and 59-month-old in the Far North region, specifically in the Logone et Charie Departement.
  • The project targets Nigerian refugees as well as IDPs. So far, around 93.460 boy and girls between 6 and 59-month-old have benefited from the partnership WFP –IEDA Relief.
  • We do this by (1) distributing the super cereal +++ and following up treatments for severely malnourished young children through reference to health centers.
  • The project wants to:
    • Prevent severe malnutrition among girls and boys between 6-23 month
    • Organize treatment for moderate malnutrition for girls and boys between 6-59 months
    • Promote, strengthen and support complementary activities that are related to nutrition within the communities
    • Build the capacity of community workers (men and women) who are actually the link between beneficiaries and service providers in prevention and treatment interventions. This includes giving them the ability to mobilize community members, including men, on childhood nutrition and protection and to evaluate activities
  • This action wants to ensure that:
    • Girls and boys from 6 to 59 month receive the full pack of the supplementary feeding on regular basis
    • The nutritional status of girls and boys from 6 to 59 month is monitored every month
    • And All the complementary community services that are related to nutrition for young infants are guaranteed in favor for girls and boys from 6 to 59

2. General food distribution (GFD)

  • The objective is to improve the food security and population living conditions in the in the Logone et Charie Department in the far North of Cameroun.
  • This project targets IDPs and local vulnerable population. Around 300,000 people have been supported by the partnership between WFP and IEDA since 2015
  • Food distributed is majorly cereals including rice, sorgum and maize, milet flour and cooking oil.
  • IEDA Relief has built a great capacity of community and leader sensitization to have community ownership and involvement from all the stakeholders and beneficiaries.
  • IEDA distributes and works closely with the community leaders to follow through complains and ensure accountability. For this, IEDA has set up the food distribution community and the complaints community to ensure that the food goes to the vulnerable people in a transparent way.

These two projects have helped IEDA-WFP strengthen their partnership and consolidate their operational ties through joint monitoring actions
