Indeed, for this 5th edition, the producers of the province of Ganzourgou who wanted to share 2.6 tons of food with vulnerable people, half of whom are internally displaced persons (IDPs). Edwige Kaboré, who runs a restaurant in Pama, in the Kompienga region (East), fled insecurity to find herself in Zorgho, in the Central Plateau region. Happy to be selected among the beneficiaries, she expressed her gratitude to the donors.

“It is an action of solidarity and self-giving.”
Regarding the selection criteria of vulnerable people, Ambroise Ouédraogo said that his association collaborates with the provincial directorate of Social Action, which makes the observation on the ground. “We cover all the provinces. Ganzourgou has eight communes and we work in all eight communes,” he said.
The high commissioner of the Ganzourgou province, Ambroise Ouédraogo, welcomed this action which, according to him, will relieve these vulnerable people. “It is an action of solidarity and self-sacrifice (…) To date, there are about 9,000 IDPs in the province of Ganzourgou. So such a day of solidarity contributes, in a small way, to solve the difficulties,” he said.
This activity of the Beoog-Neere Association of Ganzourgou is part of the project to strengthen the resilience of the people of Ganzourgou to food and nutritional insecurity
SOLIDAR Switzerland, the association’s financial partner, was represented at the food handover ceremony. According to Apollinaire Nana, the project manager for food security and agricultural entrepreneurship at SOLIDAR Switzerland, this is a local solidarity mechanism that does not require external funding. “Together, we came up with a mechanism to enable producers to help people in their localities who do not have sufficient means. We are pleased that five years later, people can adopt this approach,” he said.
For this 5th edition of the day of solidarity, six villages of the eight communes of the province of Ganzourgou have benefited from this gift.
