WFP COVID-19 support to Kenya

Description

This programme is aimed at supporting the WFP Kenya Country Strategic Plan. With Finland's support, WFP will, amongst other things, support the Kenyan government in its COVID-19 response by strengthening household food security. Food insecurity has increased significantly in Kenya due to the COVID-19 restrictive measures. WFP offers the Kenyan government technical and logistical assistance in its fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, provides people living in informal settlements with mobile cash transfers, and ensures the sufficient nutrition of vulnerable groups.Finland's support to WFP:s COVID-19 support is 1 million euros in 2020.
