Over the past five years, ERDO has assisted Ugandans through emergency food supplies or programs that address the longer-term food needs of communities. In 2007, 50,000 people were assisted with emergency food by ERDO partnering with the CRWRC, MCC and the Canadian Foodgrains Bank.
As much as emergency food aid is required in times of crisis, food self-sustainability is always the most desired outcome.
