Tanzania: Drought-Food Insecurity 6-month summary update (MDRTZ012)
This Drought/Food Insecurity Appeal was launched in order to provide support to five districts in Tanzania (Ngorongoro, Simanjiro, Same, Rombo and Mwanga) which were most affected by drought and food insecurity.
The appeal had three major areas of intervention: Food assistance was urgently needed for the 2,760 most food insecure households in the 5 target districts, for a period of two months. Out of this, 1,000 households in Kilimanjaro Region would receive cash disbursement targeting female-headed households, child headed households, isolated individuals and elderly people. Early recovery activities would also be conducted focusing on improving food production in the affected communities through support of agricultural inputs (fertilizer and seeds) and farming tools (hoes, machetes, axes and shovels).
