Description The project would contribute significantly to the Government's efforts to provide rescue and relief to the affected population and also enhance the capacity of the rescue and relief agencies to meet future needs by replacing the stock of emergency item. The National Disaster Management Agency will procure emergencies supplies including tents, and blankets. The stock will then be transferred to the store of provincial and state government according to their respective needs.
