Working in Crises and Conflict

Speeches Shim

We support humanitarian interventions for conflict-affected populations through our Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance and Food for Peace program, in partnership with the World Food Program. We assist refugees and internally displaced persons due to regional conflicts. Our programs address acute malnutrition, provide free quality health care for children, and improve livelihoods through unconditional cash transfers to vulnerable households to assist them to meet basic needs. We also provide cash-for-work activities to support households while restoring community infrastructure damaged by the conflict. We establish safe spaces for women and girls to receive psychosocial support, learn ways to mitigate gender based violence, and gain practical skills to foster independence and self-sufficiency.
