Official Visit of the Coordinator of the Coordinator of the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement and UN Assistant Secretary General, Ms Gerda VERBURG to the EU Funded BReST Project
On 8th May 2018 the EU Delegation accompanied the Coordinator of the Scaling Up Nutrition (SUN) Movement and UN Assistant Secretary General, Ms Gerda VERBURG, during a field visit to the 100% EU funded BReST Project being implemented by UNICEF in three regions of the country.
The visit took place at the Brikama Ba Health Centre in CRR. The UNICEF Country Representative also accompanied the visit for The Gambia as well as the Director of the Gambia National Nutrition Agency (NaNA) and officials from the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare.
The SUN coordinator visited the Health Centre during the process of registration and payment of the monthly cash transfer of 600 GMD (approx. 12 Euros) to 600 project beneficiaries with children under the age of 2. The SUN coordinator met with beneficiaries, health centre officials and project staff members. The health centre was very busy. The visit permitted to see the scale of the operation, demonstration of the online registration system SCOPE as well as understanding of the logistics and security involved during the cash transfer. The mission then visited a BReST project beneficiary household where the mother testified that the BReST project helped survival of her prematurely delivered twins. During the visit, the SUN coordinator recognized the EU funded project as a great success.
