WFP Food Vouchers, A Double Benefit In West Darfur
In 2011, WFP introduced vouchers in Ardamata Camp in El Geneina, capital of West Darfur. Since then, vouchers have transformed the way WFP has been able to meet the food needs of more than 21,000 internally displaced people in the camp. Vouchers enables them to have the foods that cater to their tastes, boosts local economy and increase the demand for homegrown produce. In 2015, WFP is supporting more than half a million people in Darfur with vouchers.
