Advancing Nutrition in Sierra Leone

This project was implemented between May 2015 and May 2016 with the financial support of Irish Aid, with the aim to contain the negative socio-economic impact of the Ebola outbreak on the food and nutrition security status of vulnerable households in Sierra Leone. The specific objective of the project was to ensure an economic income and improve the diversity of food intake of the targeted vulnerable households in Moyamba District. The proposed intervention aimed first to give these households the means to access sufficient food during the lean season through unconditional cash transfer.
