Building Roads and Resilience in Chad

Since December 2013, conflict in Central African Republic has caused 113,000 Chadians in CAR to flee, returning to their home country.  Though it seems like coming home would be easy, most of these people left Chad decades ago, and no longer have a solid support network in their home country.  Returning to fragile and food insecure regions, the returnees were in need of assistance, particularly to make sure that they did not create additional burden for their host communities.  WFP has been providing crucial support to these returnees for the past year through vouchers, which let returnees purchase food in local markets.  Now, WFP is initiating resilience projects for the returnees and vulnerable host communities: providing vouchers to participants in asset-building projects. With support from the United Nations Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF), WFP launched a project to rehabilitate the road from the town of Goré, to the returnee sites of Danamadja and Kobiteye in southern Chad.
