Communities in Guyana face ongoing economic and financial difficulties which have been further exacerbated by the onset of flood waters. Due to the ongoing natural disaster, there is a demand for short term support solutions for vulnerable individuals, and impacted communities. The project aims to assist the impacted populations in the form of food baskets and hygienic kits to supplement a proper livelihood during the ongoing Natural Disaster (flooding). The project also will be providing “200 baby chickens and 13 weeks of chicken feed supply” to impacted households to create income generating opportunity and supplement livelihood for the families. Most of the areas that are flooded were farming and cattle rearing land. Due to the disaster a lot of the cattle has died and the farmland is under water, leaving communities vulnerable to food and livelihood insecurity.
