Erbil, KURDISTAN (May 3, 2020), Rwanga Foundation provides Food Baskets to more than 600 disadvantaged IDP families who are living outside of the camps.

As the restrictions on movement have affected the livelihood of many people, especially the vulnerable families. Moreover, most of them have been deprived of their main source of income.

Therefore, Rwanga Foundation provided food baskets to vulnerable families in KRI, mainly the IDP families who fled to Erbil Governorate because of the ISIS attack back in 2014.

The baskets were provided to more than 600 IDP families. Widows, families with no daily income, and families living in temporary accommodation/rent houses were the main criteria for selecting the families to receive the aids.

Each food basket contained 12 dry food items: Rice, Sugar, Tea, Vegetable Oil, Tomato Paste, Chickpeas, Beans, Lentil, Salt, Detergent, White Flour, and Groats). The total cost for each Basket was around 80 USD.

Since the curfew announcement in KRI, Rwanga Foundation implemented many projects in the sector of Vulnerable Groups. Including providing Food Baskets for more than 5000 vulnerable families from the host community across KRI. Moreover, more than 5,653 Food Baskets were distributed to the Refugees in 8 different Refugee Camps in Erbil, Sulaimani, and Duhok.
