March 2019 – Chad faces interconnected humanitarian crises in a context of chronic poverty, food insecurity and low economic and social development. The security situation in neighbouring countries continues to generate population movements, particularly from the Central African Republic (CAR) in the south, from Sudan in the east, as well as internal displacement in the Lac province. This context has left nearly 4.3 million people (of which 51% are women) in need of emergency humanitarian assistance. Moreover, nutritional needs have increased by 29% compared to the beginning of 2018. With GAC’s support, CARE Canada is helping to assist up to 19,347 conflict-affected people in the Lac province. Project activities include: (1) constructing or rehabilitating water points, benefiting up to 5,000 people; (2) distributing cash-for-work to up to 4,200 beneficiaries for work on small community projects, and providing unconditional cash assistance to up to 434 vulnerable people; (3) provide small pre-vaccinated ruminants to rebuild the livestock of up to 1,000 households; (4) building the capacity of up to 1,000 women and girls to manage income generating activities and resources such as land, water and pasture; and (5) distributing dignity kits for women and girls, which contain items required to maintain feminine hygiene, dignity and respect in their daily lives, benefiting up to 1,000 women and girls.
