This includes food for 5,000 people and infant cereal formula for 1,680 children provided by WFP and the NGO People in Need (PIN); plastic sheeting, jerrycans and blankets for 3,000 people from UNHCR; mattresses, thermal blankets, and solar lamps for 2,500 people from IOM; and water supplies for 1,664 people from People in Need.
