Emergency Food Security Mobile Cash Transfer Programme

The Zimbabwe Emergency Food Security Mobile Cash Transfer Response (ZEFSMCTR) Program implementation commenced in April 2016 in Gokwe South; this was against a backdrop of increasing food insecurity in the targeted communities of the district. The Zimbabwe Vulnerability Assessment Committee’s (ZimVac) rapid assessment report of January 2016 had projected that 33% of households in the southern districts of the country would be food insecure during the peak hunger period (January to March 2016). The food insecurity was attributed to the El Nino phenomenon that resulted in poor crop and livestock performance resulting in a drought. The government of Zimbabwe declared a state of drought disaster for the 2015/16 agriculture season, on 4 February 2016 and appealed for humanitarian support of US$1.5 billion.

Nepal Earthquake: Emergency Shelter and NFIs to Affected Households funded by Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade End-Line Assessment

CARE Nepal had implemented relief distribution post the earthquake of 25th April 2015, in four districts of Nepal that were severely affected by the earthquake. Under one of such recovery program DFATD's "Nepal Earthquake: Emergency Shelter and NFIs to Affected Households" began immediately after the earthquake. The earthquakes damaged people’s households, existing drinking water supply systems in communities, sanitation facilities, thus hampering people’s sanitation standards and exposing them to heavy rainfall. CARE Nepal’s DFATD funded project sought to meet the immediate needs of earthquake affected people through the distribution of emergency shelter materials, household NFIs, materials for the construction of household latrines, and hygiene kits. Adding further the DFATD also distributed winter items to help the affected people to face the winter season. As commissioned by CARE Nepal, International Institute of Independent Researchers (3iR) Pvt. Ltd has conducted the End-line survey focused on the DFATD response project in Sindupalchowk District.
