cbm has almost completed the first phase of its three-phase relief and recovery programme. Now cbm is now working on the next phase of recovery and focuses on “building back better” and ensuring reconstruction efforts are inclusive.
From 20 November to 2 December 2013, cbm provided support by eleven distributions of food and survival supplies. So far cbm reached 3,000 vulnerable families, approximately 18,000 people. These distributions included more than 1,000 families with persons with disabilities plus elderly people, women headed households, and the poorest people in the municipality.
Survival bags distributed make them independent for a period of two to three weeks and included the following:
Rice | Canned foods | Milk | Coffee | Sugar | Salt | Laundry soap | Bath soap | Blanket | Bags |
Mosquito net | Toothbrushes | Toothpaste | Mat | Flashlight | Batteries | Sanitary napkins |
cbm’s distributions were mostly arranged and conducted by persons with disabilities, among them people with physical disabilities, with hearing impairment and one lady who is blind.
