The "Food Security and Resilience in the Lake region” project seeks to improve the food security situation of more than 1,000 of the most vulnerable households in the Kaya, Mamdi, and Fouli Departments in the Lac Region near Lake Chad. With this project, CRS and our local partners SECADEV will organize a food fair, where beneficiaries receive vouchers to choose non-perishable food items from 27 different vendors. The project will also distribute corn seeds to 400 people and fishing equipment to 250 people, which aims to help improve livelihoods over the long-term.
