Food Security, Nutrition & Livelihood (FSL)
FRDP is promoting the cause of sustainable food and nutrition security through promotion of value chain, distribution of food, fodder, kitchen gardening while raising public awareness using behavioural change communication (BCC) during emergencies and in development interventions. FRDP, through various community support programmes, mainly targets food security of the rural population in Pakistan. In emergencies, FRDP regularly distributes nutritious supplies of food among the poor communities through its seasonal food-distribution projects. FRDP takes into consideration the nutritional requirements of lactating women and young children while deciding the contents of its food baskets. The organization provides awareness sessions for the mothers to help them realize the importance of breastfeeding as well. During development interventions, FRDP is continuously striving to improve resilience at the community level by improving vocational skills and practices among communities for sustainable livelihoods.
