Summary: 

Tanzania, Lukole refugee camp, August 2005

WFP's Protracted Relief and Recovery Operation (PRRO 10062.2) supports more than 350,000 refugees from Burundi and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) in 12 refugee camps in western Tanzania.

Under this PRRO, WFP provides assistance to the refugees through general food distribution as well as nutritional support to malnourished individuals (mainly pregnant/nursing mothers and children). WFP also provides support to 10,000 people in refugee-host communities in the form of food for work, food for training, food for hospital patients, home-based care of HIV/AIDS patients, orphanage centres, support to vulnerable and destitute families and the feeding of complementary basic education institutions that enroll children who were previously out-of-school.
