The International Food Relief Partnership (IFRP) program in the Kyrgyz Republic is funded by the USAID Office of Food for Peace. The IFRP strives to reduce food insecurity among the most vulnerable groups, including children, women, patients with TB and mental diseases, people with disabilities, elderly citizens and orphans.
In 2014, IFRP will deliver and distribute Harwst Lentil Pro, a fortified, dehydrated, lentil-blended micro-nutrient soup mix, produced by Breedlow Dehydrated Foods in Lubbock, Texas. This will be the seventh round of IFRP program in the Kyrgyz Republic.
The 2014 round is implemented by the American NGO Resource and Policy Exchange (RPX), in close cooperation with the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Social Development of the Kyrgyz Republic. On site the program is administered by the local Public Foundation Ergene.
It's been a busy spring for USAID. We're actively engaging Turkmenistan in their WTO accession, strengthening the carpet export industry across Central Asia, and are moving forward on the prevention, treatment, and care of tuberculosis.
USAID/Kyrgyz Republic produced a 2014 wall calendar that includes images of beneficiaries and brief captions telling about USAID assistance in the country. The calendar includes images of projects working to improve the quality education, health care services, youth support, local economic development, agricultural productivity, food security and independent media in the Kyrgyz Republic. USAID's successes in cooperation are highlighted throughout the calendar.
