In addition, in 48 hours Food For The Poor sent food, extra clothing and basic necessities to the Southern Department, divided into 2 trucks and 7 containers. These cargoes were handed over directly to the Civil Protection, which in collaboration with Max Serge Daniel the Delegate of the Department of the South, was sent to the affected populations for distribution of :

  • 50 tonnes of rice;
  • 15 tonnes of petit-mil;
  • 10 tonnes of peas;
  • 300 boxes of canned peas;
